Why Parks Matter and
How Cities Can Benefit.
Urban parks promote community engagement, improve health outcomes, drive economic development, and contribute to more resilient, safe, and sustainable communities.
Imagine Austin presents an evening with urban planner/designer and park expert Gia Biagi. Currently serving as Senior Director for Urbanism + Civic Impact at Studio Gang, an architecture and urban design collective located in Chicago and New York, Gia is widely regarded as a thought leader in the preservation, enhancement, and expansion of urban public space. She will share insights on why parks matter as a strategic priority and how to leverage parks to meet the needs of the city as a whole.
