7 Questions: Perspectives on the future of parks and public spaces – A webinar series

Park Animators: How to inspire safe, community-led park animation and build community resilience

November 10, 2020

People living in underserved neighbourhoods, which are often COVID-19 hotspots, are rightfully concerned about venturing outdoors. As a result, they are experiencing an increased risk of social isolation and related mental and physical health challenges.

In an attempt to address these challenges, and get more people active and outdoors, Park People launched the Community Resilience Project – a pilot program to help people living in underserved communities safely access the outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Park People’s Park Animators told us how they helped over 680 people from underserved Toronto communities get outdoors (and learn how you can do the same in your community!).
