Park Planner Palooza is an opportunity for Oregon park planners and design professionals to receive training (and CEUs), discuss cutting-edge planning initiatives, and view innovative projects.  Participants will learn about innovative methods to re-envision the typical planning public engagement process to better plan and design community projects that foster unity and diversity.  We will explore creative interventions that leverage our limited public funding to serve the recreational needs of a diverse and growing population, and agency responses to the increasing public demand for diverse and inclusive access. 

Participants will have an opportunity to network with other park and recreation planners from around Oregon in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

What You Will Learn

  • Four Educational sessions
  • Pecha Kucha Sharing and/or Taboo Topics in P&R P&D
  • Walking tour: a new splash pad and playground
