ESSENTIAL: Public Health, Public Space, & the Design of Boston’s Big Parks

May 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join leaders in landscape architecture & public health in a discussion about the past, present, and future of open space in Boston.

Register for this event here.

Now, more than ever, parks are essential infrastructure. Supporting physical and mental health, enhancing human and ecological resilience, offering places to protest and spaces to heal, parks have played vital roles during this past pandemic year – and will in the years to come. Rather fortuitously, Boston is currently renovating its three largest open spaces: Boston Common, Franklin Park, and Moakley Park. As part of Boston Design Week, join the landscape architects and public health experts designing these projects in a discussion about the past, present, and future of open space in Boston and beyond.
