Now more than ever, communities are recognizing the value of strengthened waterfront connections.

From linear stream corridors with trail and open space linkages to vibrant public parks adjacent to lakes and riverfronts, these areas offer special opportunities for placemaking that celebrate our connection to one of earth’s most precious resources.
