Institute for Urban Parks
All communities deserve great urban parks.
“Helping Other Parks” is a core value of the Central Park Conservancy and is a part of our organizational mission. As a leader in the field of urban park management and public-private park partnerships, the Conservancy’s success has paved the way for countless other urban parks and the partnerships that support them.
The Institute for Urban Parks, founded in 2013, provides professional education, capacity building, peer-to-peer exchange, and thought leadership to strengthen the field of urban park management so that all park professionals have the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to create and support successful and sustainable parks.
