From Bryant Park in Manhattan to Klyde Warren Park in Dallas to Nashville, privately owned public space (POPS) and nonprofit parks organizations (NPOs) present new options for providing integrated public space in a city. Many municipalities have tight budgets and resources, which limits their ability, expertise, and/or inclination to purchase, develop, operate, and maintain public parks and open space. Many in the private development and nonprofit communities are working to fill the gap by providing all or portions of the design, development, operation, and maintenance for parks and open spaces, whether they are privately or publicly owned. How can you be part of this new partnership in your community?
