One of the three episodes of the PBS 10 that Changed America series, 10 Parks that Changed America is a lively history of landscape architecture across the US. We take a whirlwind tour through 10 influential city parks including the Squares of Savannah in Georgia, a park-like cemetery near Boston, the forgotten story of Central Park, the San Antonio River Walk, a park built on a toxic site in Seattle, and the High Line in New York.
Please join us as we present an edited screening of this episode (featuring Gas Works Park and Freeway Park) and a panel discussion between host Geoffrey Baer, producer Dan Protess, Rich Haag, the founder of our Department, and Rachel Gleeson of MVVA.
