Youth play a crucial role in envisioning and realizing our future communities, but are often left out of the planning process. In this month’s episode we speak with Darcie Vandegrift, a Principal Researcher at the Metropolitan Council, about her research on the relationship between youth and parks. This research aimed to better understand youth experiences in parks by focusing on motivations for participation, barriers to access, and desired activities and amenities. Listen to the episode to learn more about the research process, their findings, and how this information is being used.
