Park Visioning

Our signature program

Program Overview

Park Visioning is quite unique—like no other in the country.  Led by professional landscape architects on Park Pride’s staff, a community is taken  through an 8-month process of compiling community input to determine where their needs are and to design (or re-design) their neighborhood park. In essence, the process converts a community’s dream into a conceptual, but tangible masterplan. The Park Visioning process and resulting conceptual master plans not only energize the community to improve their quality of life, but become powerful tools to solicit private funding and lobby for public funding for communities to help reach their goals.—Since the program was initiated in 2005, with strong community support and leverage, more than $4.5 million has gone toward implementing these community-created “Park Visions.”


"Not only did the Visioning process save us so much money, it helped us envision the park we wanted.  Walt was amazing. He was a leader … and helped us put everything into perspective."
