Midday Muse: What's Old Is New Again

Midday Muse: What's Old Is New Again

Yesterday, I told you about the passing of famed landscape architect Robert Royston. Royston's concern for the public's need for green spaces is perfectly expressed in this video, which explains the ideas behind the 1955 construction of Palo Alto's Mitchell Park.

What really strikes me about this video is that half a century later, the same issues that Royston outlines in the video (which he narrates) are even more important. Public space, access to nature, community gathering places, and spaces in which one can exercise and reinvigorate are necessary for our health and well-being. What's the park situation in your town?
