How to fix the city: We get our urban parks and green spaces all wrong. 

We look at the social role of parks in the urban core, what works, what doesn’t work, and how we can do better.

We have an absurd view of parks in Halifax. With some few exceptions, vending is frowned upon, and alcohol is flat out illegal. Moreover, we paint all parks with the same expectation: they are green wildernesses first, and people fit in only so far as the green wilderness is maintained. This would be a much better city if we changed the way we interact with our urban green spaces, and brought people and green together.
