Borough President candidates talk parks at Open Spaces forum


Borough presidential hopefuls discussed the state of Brooklyn’s greenspaces during an April 22 virtual forum, where they laid out their visions for open spaces and parks. 

The forum, organized by the Brooklyn Parks and Open Spaces Coalition and hosted by community journalist Brian Vines, covered a wide range of topics related to parks and public spaces, including creating equity across the park system, the relationship between development and open spaces, and fully funding the city’s Parks Department.
