The GOOD Cities Project

We create the cities we love, and the cities we love create us.

Our need for access to the natural world is paramount. To have greenspaces to frequent, trees to climb, fields to throw a frisbee in… The urban landscape would be pretty bleak if not for the brief (or sometimes vast) moments of respite provided by our urban parks. In this installment of the GOOD Cities Project—our look at how we make our cities and our cities make us—we examine the ever-vital urban park and how it’s evolved over time.Advertisement

The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
