Greater & Greener 2019: Exploring Natural Connections is presented by City Parks Alliance, the only independent, nationwide membership organization dedicated solely to urban parks. The conference will bring together more than 1,000 leaders from parks and recreation, public works, transportation, city planning and other municipal agencies, mayors, advocacy and funding organizations, community leaders, designers and landscape architects, real estate developers and other stakeholders involved in city building.
For more than a decade, Greater & Greener has been the leading international conference for urban park leaders, city planning and design professionals, public officials, advocates, funders, and innovators to explore the role of parks and recreation in addressing some of the biggest challenges facing 21st Century cities. The highly curated sessions, workshops, and tours facilitate an honest dialogue around solutions, cross-sector and peer-to-peer networking, and tools for building successful park partnerships.
Greater & Greener 2019: Exploring Natural Connections comes to Denver, CO, July 20-24. The Denver metropolitan region is one of the fastest growing in the U.S., due in part, to the city’s ongoing commitment to an outdoor urban lifestyle. The entire city is our venue as historic vision and modern execution of the Denver park system provide first-hand examples of urban park planning, partnerships, design, and programming.
