Jacksonville is home to the largest urban park system in the nation. What does that actually mean? Where does green space fit in with the growth of our city? Join us to explore the evolution of our beloved parks and what experts see as the next steps for further integrating green space into Downtown. This conversation is a production of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and The Jaxson Magazine. Launched by Modern Cities in association with WJCT Public Broadcasting, The Jaxson is a multimedia project dedicated to urbanism and culture on Florida’s First Coast.
