    park planning

    me again.

    how does one become a park planner? are their specific things that i could do, besides an internship, that could help me become a park planner? in school i focused on land use planning but we didn't have anything specific to park planning.

    The park planners I've known have had degrees or lots of training in landscape architecture. Just my observation.

    Trail Nazi had a degree in historic preservation, worked in zoning/land use, then became a park planner when she moved to VA. Send her a PM. If she isn't in the midst of giving birth, she can give you some good advice.

    I know of several LA's that work on greenways/trails.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
