Revitalizing Our Urban Parks


Location: Unknown


Urban parks played an important role in my childhood and teenage years. Parks are where I made my friends. Parks are what got me through college, and they are where I spent a lot of my time.

That is why I was honored when the National Recreation and Park Association presented me with an award for my work promoting urban parks and my dedication to urban revitalization on March 17, 2011. Earlier this year, I reintroduced my bill, the Urban Revitalization and Livable Communities Act, which would provide federal assistance grants to urban park and recreation agencies. I look forward to continuing my work promoting urban parks and building livable communities.
