Have you ever considered taking your afternoon walk next to a sewage treatment plant?

More than half the world's population now lives in cities. As this number rises, we will continue to need access to high quality parks and people places. With land in our cities under increasing pressure, where will our future city parks come from?
Amalie Wright's new book Future Park: imagining tomorrow's urban parks shows how cities, councils and communities have responded to the challenge, using innovative thinking about what parks can be.
