The Institute hosts events throughout the year, bringing together urban park professionals to share experiences and expertise in an effort to improve park care. Through a variety of formats and topics, participants examine both challenges and successes in urban park management. Register for an event below, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Institute convenes The Urban Park Practitioners Roundtable twice annually to focus on specific issues in urban park management. Participants collectively develop "next practices" thought leadership, and a community of practice. The results of each Roundtable are published in a white paper and shared with the broader urban park community.
The Institute for Urban Parks Webinar Series provides online opportunities for urban park managers from around the world to learn about the techniques and practices used by the Central Park Conservancy.
