NKY Regional Parks Initiative
Human Nature was asked to assist in the formulation of a vast visioning project in collaboration with Vision 2015 in order to achieve a regional aspiration for the parks of Northern Kentucky. Northern Kentucky hosts a diverse variety of parks, but they are not yet a cohesive system. This visioning exercise was the first in a series of community-based exercises intended to bring all of the region's parks and open space resources together into a comprehensive plan.
