Designing Parks to Contribute to Healthy Lifestyles

As our population continues to age, communities must continue to stay livable and usable to all because the reality is we’re designing these communities for our future selves. According to the World Health Organization, by 2050 2 billion people will be over the age of 60. This takes a look at the evolution of our aging population and age-integration trends, and will address how intentionally designed parks contribute to healthy lifestyles, keep older adults engaged and combat common ageist beliefs.

We are authorized to provide .1 CEUs, 1 LUs and 1 PDHs, which meet Health, Safety and Welfare credits. We also offer AIA credit including nano units. After this 60-minute Learning Academy session, you’ll have an understanding of the following learning objectives:

  1. The necessity of intergenerational spaces and their importance in all communities as our population ages.
  2. The benefits of escaping ageist beliefs and promoting an active societal contribution using shared sites.
  3. Best practices to support multigenerational park design.
