Frog Park Achievements Attract Park Supporters and Planners to Tour

Saturday, May 9, 2015

Alerted by a report on Frog Park in the February 2014 issue of Landscape Architecture, Greater & Greener designed a mobile workshop tour of Frog Park for attendees at its current biennial conference in San Francisco.

Forty workshop participants were guided through the park in mid-April as FROG chair Carol Behr and FROG committee member Barney Smits described the remarkable history of the park from its conception to its hands-on construction by more than 1,300 community volunteers, and the continuing volunteer support for its ever-growing features.

Greater & Greener, as described on its website, is the leading international conference for urban park leaders, city planning and design professionals, public officials, advocates, funders, and innovators to explore the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing todayÕs urban parks.
