Green Infrastructure

An emerging opportunity for parks and recreation is the broader integration of diverse green infrastructure and parks into their field. Urban parks, wetlands, park-lets, green roofs, and urban forestry all play critical roles in urban cooling, and safe transportation corridors for walking and cycling.
