Field Guide for Creative Placemaking and Parks


The Trust for Public Land and the City Parks Alliance




The Field Guide is intended to connect creative placemaking with parks and open spaces. It answers two important questions: first, "What is creative placemaking?" and second, "How does creative placemaking make for better parks and stronger communities?" The Field Guide is organized into two broad section: a "how-to" guide for strategizing and implementing a park-based creative placemaking project; and a set of eleven compelling case studies that demonstrate the breadth of this kind of community development.
