Demonstration Projects

NRPA is working in partnership with cities to support large scale, replicable park green infrastructure projects that will serve as case studies for park and recreation agencies.


Community Engagement

Meaningful and prolonged community engagement and a collaborative approach are essential to creating parks that are embraced by nearby residents and contribute to the well-being of the communities they serve. NRPA is working in partnership with three communities to identify best practices and innovative strategies that effectively empower the community to influence the design of a green infrastructure project that best suits their needs, while also benefiting the local environment.
