Canyons, Plazas, and Parks: 

Meeting our Changing Needs for Public Spaces


Parks and open space are a critical component of our quality of life. How should they be addressed in the update of the 60 year old City of San Diego Parks Master Plan now underway?

 

C-3 has long been an advocate for activating the public realm: creating parks and preserving open space. This is part of the legacy of C-3’s founder Lloyd Ruocco, and their importance is reflected in the observations of Lynch and Appleyard in "Temporary Paradise?" In recent years there has been a renewed focus on the importance of parks, open space and the public realm as a critical element of the health and well-being of the individual and the community. Author Richard Louv has coined a term for when we don't have access to nature—“Nature Deficit Disorder” not only to big parks and open country but to small local spaces, a plot of grass, some trees, a plaza, a tree-lined promenade.

 

The City of San Diego has begun a new Parks Master Plan, presenting a new opportunity to re-imagine public space and parks in our city. What should be in it? How should it address the changed and changing nature of our community? How do San Diego's canyons play a role? 

The C-3 panel will lead the discussion and present ideas on how we should continue the development of a public realm for San Diego.
