Parks provide extraordinary benefits to individuals, families and communities, including benefits in public and environmental health, economic and educational value and community strength. As San Jose grows responsibly, and more densely, in urban villages, what role should parks play and how should re-think their form? Co-presented by Greenbelt Alliance.
