Winter is an exciting time that looks different across regions but one thing reigns true is that our parks, public spaces and open spaces need to be accessible to all. These spaces need to be accessible in winter as well as all other seasons! This webinar series will dive into the innovative public space development, programming, design and management from cities across Canada, North America and the world.Winter can be a challenging time for not only residents but professionals working to advocate for the winter use of parks, public spaces and open spaces. These webinars will pull together those who are working towards how we can better keep our colder weather communities active and engaged.
Join the conversation in our new Activating Outdoor Recreation and Parks — All Seasons group on the Bench, CPRA’s free online community.
