  • » A Vision for “Complete Parks” in Kingston
    people reside work and worship Not all our neighborhoods of Kingston have the space for a traditional park but new linear parks corridors and pocket parks linked by pedestrian safe walkways and sidewalks can create the safe havens and recreational spaces that many desire as part of their quality of life The location of these new open spaces and the proximity of these to residential neighborhoods allows the city to create parks in new locations and access new population areas that are traditionally under served The recently passed Ulster County Resolution for the U D Corridor proposes a trail only section in Midtown Kingston from Cornell St to the east end of the Kingston Plaza Note the little pink segment in the City of Kingston Activate Parks serve the needs of improving health the environment and even the local economy Active uses go the next step to engage the user Programming can help bring people to parks and allow them to build relationships not only with park staff but to the park itself The programming that the Kingston Parks and Recreation Department currently provides includes numerous opportunities for residents and visitors to interact with learn about play in and truly feel connected to their neighborhood and larger city but more can always be done New programs should be identified and implemented either using existing city resources or working with community partners to truly engage the visitors to our park system Snowshoes stacked up for a snowshoeing program at Hasbrouck Park in 2014 Will we have snow to snowshoe this year Grow In addition to growing the number of parks and play spaces within a community the quality of the space itself should be examined to maximize the ecological benefits and minimize the impact from each park Parks and greenspaces should be developed in a way that is sustainable and includes appropriate city policies for the City of Kingston such as the Kingston Climate Action Plan the goals and principles of the Climate Smart Community Program the Parks and Recreation Master Plan and others when renovating constructing planting and managing our park system This consciousness will allow future infrastructure work done on our streets parks and linear corridors to develop consistently with growing Kingston green Protect To many people parks represent recreation relaxation and respite To others that same space may project fear anxiety and unknowns Is this perception or reality Some people perceive their neighborhood parks as unsafe for a variety of reasons and whether its perception or reality work should be done to utilize tools and policies that will improve park visitor safety This can be done with maintenance people scale lighting and crime prevention through environmental design The Van Buren Street park in Midtown Kingston was upgraded in 2014 Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design principles were used A more inviting fence was built between the park and the street Fund Funding constraints make up one of the largest obstacles to park innovation Our community along with many others
