Park Pride’s Parks & Greenspace Conference is an annual gathering of 350 park supporters, community leaders, greenspace advocates, business leaders, landscape architects, arborists, nonprofit groups, developers, planners, urban designers, elected officials and policy makers from the southeast. These participants gather to share innovative ideas and initiatives to inspire communities to utilize and improve their community parks, gardens and greenspaces.

Building on previous conferences, this year’s theme – “Activating Parks for Healthy Communities” – is certain to inspire healthier lifestyles by highlighting: Healthy Benefits of Play, Health through Community Engagement in Parks, Health and the Natural Environment, Parks are Good Medicine and Health through Park Design.
