Why Use the Tool
The Toolkit for Community Participation in Pocket Parks offers recommendations on how to implement community participation processes for the diagnosis, design, execution and evaluation of small-scale urban projects. The guidelines are intended for city managers, planning officials, and others who wish to identify, expand, and develop “pocket parks,” or small green spaces, in their community.
