Play, Learning, Art, Color, Exercise, and Nature

Elements of streets and the public realm can bring joy and create an engaging public realm where people of all ages want to be, in turn encouraging walking and the use of transit. Elements can all work together to create vibrant spaces where there are opportunities in the right of way. In a rapidly densifying city with higher density housing and more people with limited access to private yard spaces, the right of way takes on an added significance as community places and open space.
