PARKS AND PLAY!! IS THE THEME

Monday, March 21, 2016 (all day)

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

It is incredibly exciting and promising that the big annual Park Pride Parks and Greenspace Conference has Parks and Play : A Conversation for All Ages as its topic this year. Children can get lost in the policy and politics of grownups and that is something we all need to be on the look out for. The focus of this conference is on play for all ages, but children are a big part of that focus. There are some inspiring keynote speakers such as James Siegel, the brand new CEO of KaBOOM! and Alex Gilliam of Public Workshop is going to blow people away! Barbara Tulipane, the head of the NRPA, will speak ,as will Robin Moore from the Natural Learning Initiative who knows more about children and play than anyone I know and has written the books to prove it. 

If you haven't bought your ticket yet you had better hurry. I look forward to seeing you on Monday! This is going to be a very important event for our city.
