Protecting Parks and Open Space in Perpetuity

Webinar

Many communities assume the permanence of their parks and other public open spaces. While numerous Pennsylvania laws and doctrines favor the permanence of these special places, the effectiveness of legal protections often depends on the actions of members of the public and their elected officials. In this session, we will review the statutes, doctrines, and legal tools that safeguard our parks and open spaces and consider some problematic gray areas where special care is advised.
