About the Book

"A picture book celebration of the urban park--that rare space in the city that is truly shared by all. From the opening spread in which the park 'spreads out its arms and welcomes us in, whoever we are,' readers are invited to explore and enjoy all that this green space in the middle of the city has to offer"

Book Synopsis

An ode to urban parks and the many ways they connect us to community and nature

This picture book excursion through a city park invites readers to discover how shared green spaces bring us together. Lyrical, upbeat text illuminates the abundant gifts the park offers. Vibrant mixed-media illustrations show a diverse group of visitors as they explore this communal space. Children frolic; couples wander; flowers bloom and birds zoom; friends and families picnic and play ball or simply sink their toes peacefully into the present moment. Meanwhile, rolling hills and green trees enfold visitors in nature's beauty. Encouraged by the sense of unity the park creates, the visitors come together for a joyful dance party and a march for peace and equality. Spread by spread, we see how urban parks are for everyone--whoever we are.

This love letter to public parks depicts an inclusive and accessible space where community flourishes. Without a screen in sight, it gently hints at the adventures to be had offline and encourages readers to venture into nature and connect with their neighborhoods. Back matter provides a brief history of urban parks in North America and highlights park successes around the world.

"With bold, colorful illustrations, [A Park Connects Us] celebrates, in rhyming text, all the things we do in parks."

"Nelson's lyrical text makes this book well-suited for reading aloud, while Rooney's colorful double-page spreads are full of details that engage readers ... A Park Connects Us emphasizes that public parks should be for everyone."
