On Monday, June 16th, PPS President Fred Kent delivered an inspiring lecture entitled “Creating Successful Parks, Squares, and Waterfronts” at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park.  Sponsored by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, the lecture was part of its “Uncommon Ground” series, which features presentations by visionary planners and practitioners that speak to the future growth of the parks system.  In his speech, Mr. Kent described the core principles of successful public spaces and encouraged the use of Placemaking as a citywide community building agenda.  His remarks were followed by a lively question and answer session that reflected both the shared goals of the Parks Department and PPS, as well as opportunities for further collaboration.
