Turin transforms abandoned tramway into an attractive community park | The Optimist Daily

Here at The Optimist Daily, we are big fans of sustainable urban development projects that put community front center. The creation of the Precollinear Park in Turin, Italy, is exactly this type of project. The park came about as the result of a placemaking initiative by nonprofit Torino Stratosferica. During the pandemic, the Turin city council temporarily handed over to the organization a strip of land where once ran a tramline. Even before the pandemic upended life in Italy, the strip of space was mostly abandoned. If you’re not familiar with the term, placemaking essentially means creating places in such a way that they strengthen the connections between communities and these places.
