The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation is developing Vancouver’s Playbook, a new master plan to guide the delivery of vibrant parks and recreation over the next 25 years.  As part of this process, The VanPlay Smart City Talks series will bring together some of the world’s leading thinkers on public space and urban issues to engage in a dialogue with Vancouver residents.  This series will explore big ideas and interesting insights on the way we connect, play, and explore in cities.
