Join the global urban parks community in San Francisco!

City Parks Alliance and San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department are excited to be partnering to present Greater & Greener 2015: Innovative Parks, Vibrant Cities. 

Greater & Greener is a four-day indoor and outdoor conference designed to equip you with the tools you need to create innovative, vibrant, and sustainable parks in your city, district, community or neighborhood.

You’ll be joining more than 1,000 global park leaders, city planning and design professionals, civic officials, and other urban park advocates at Greater & Greener in San Francisco — an inspiring network of peers from cities across the world. 

Through outdoor workshops and tours, engaging speaker and panel discussions, volunteer opportunities and exclusive events, we’ll highlight the people and programs having a positive impact across urban park creation, management and stewardship – in the San Francisco Bay Area and globally.
