Imagine a place where folks of all ages can get outside and explore nature near their home every day of every season of every year of their life. Everyone can join together in this endeavor – at a neighborhood ecology and community center in a nearby park; a center whose purpose is to facilitate child-adult interaction, heal the land, promote outdoor play, and educate and inspire people to understand and value nature as motivation for positive change.

Beginning as early as the 1850s and continuing for over a century, urban planners increasingly focused on grand designs for parks that would restore communities by providing a place of leisure and recreation. Seeing the transformation of rural America and the expansion of urban populations, it seemed that the loss of contact with open spaces created pathological conditions in cities.
