The Center for Urban Pedagogy, 2014
What? An illustrated guide to improving city owned parks. A collaboration between Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), a non-profit organization that uses art and design to increase civic participation, and a number of New York City based park-advocacy groups, this pamphlet guides city residents through the process of identifying, developing and initiating park improvement projects. Although the information is sometimes very New York specific, much of it can be easily applied to other cities.
Why? Parks are vital to the city - as a wonderful shared resource it's important that people know how to get involved in keeping them in the best shape possible! It's not an easy process, but history has shown that the hard work of a few persistent citizens can make a huge difference.
