"The parks are a destination! Individuals plan around the opportunity to be there. The parks are a venue. The venue provides an experience, an amenity, a value. Individuals leave with stories, memories, and couldn’t miss the opportunity to take a candid picture and share it. The parks are a sanctuary. Individuals can go there to be active, to be still, to be inspired, to be mindful, to be rejuvenated and surrounded by life, or just to be."
