The newer Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area follows a different, perhaps more workable model. There, instead of having the National Park Service take over territory formerly owned by city and 34 R E T H I N K I N G U R B A N PA R K S state agencies and private conservation trusts, those parties remain owners and managers with the Park Service providing a management overlay of research, planning, coordination, and public education and outreach. Municipal parks, for the most part, show more flexibility in responding to changing user needs.

Such is the case of the Prospect Park User Study of 1996 –1998, the third such study commissioned by the park management since 1980. Yet the user study data provide a basis for a much broader appraisal of user values: not just activity and behavior, likes and dislikes, but also the character of people’s park experience and the meanings the park has for them. Methodology The Public Space Research Group conducted the Prospect Park User Study beginning in summer 1996. Data collection continued over the following year; the final report was submitted in May 1998.

Now the field seems just to exist, like a quiet rural place unclaimed by urban development. 38 R E T H I N K I N G U R B A N PA R K S Urban landscape parks may be civic ornaments and nature preserves, but they are also vital social spaces. Places like the Peninsula field provide settings for an informal coming together of disparate groups in public spaces where the natural environment engages people’s attention. The purpose of this chapter is to contrast the park as a social and cultural space with its socially constructed identity as a historic landscape and “last forest in Brooklyn” in need of protection and restoration.
