    Wonderful to see people learning how to make our park space better unless you live in PA especially Allegheny county where our County Executive is willing to give them to the gas industry for the extraction of UNG. This will allow fracking to take place in, under and around our parks. We need to be diligent by opposing this toxic industrial process to be allowed in, on, under or near OUR public parks! Thank you for posting this interesting TED talk!

      Thanks, Briget. As Amalie Wright explains, parks are valuable for economic, psycho
      logical, and ecological reasons. We’re fortunate in Pittsburgh to have so much green space.
