Parks. Paseos. Gardens. Trails. Plazas. Bridges. Streetscapes. Promenades. These are the places that strengthen our identity, nurture our community, and make Austin great. But while the vision of an interconnected network of public spaces is clear, it is just as clear that we have a long way to go in order to fully realize it.

Great Public Spaces is a one-day action session to figure out what’s working, what’s not, and what we need to do in order to more quickly and thoroughly implement this compelling community vision. Architects, designers, city council members, trail-builders, community art promoters, neighborhood association activists, and others will share their expertise on the design and implementation of spaces in which the community can meet, mingle, and share. In addition to the on-stage panels, throughout the day we’ll ask all attendees to use the ideas being discussed to help us shape a policy agenda for future action. Drawing on national best practices and each others’ examples, we will strategize how to support each others’ efforts and together create a built environment that inspires.
