Leveraging the power of city parks through philanthropy (panel)
Philanthropists of an earlier era gave us some of Canada’s historic city parks. In our current era of limited budgets and increasing demand for city park space, philanthropic dollars can mean the difference between a great idea staying on the page and a new park coming to life. This panel discussion will explore how philanthropic initiatives are generating new park spaces, dynamic programming and revitalizing existing parks. This panel was part of the Heart of the City Conference in Calgary, 2017.
