The Fourth Edition of Anatomy of a Park features an expanded view of the practice, the business, and the administration of park design, with information gathered from interviews with professionals from both the United States and abroad.

Expanded coverage of the broad issues of ecology-oriented "green design" and the philosophy of sustainable practice. The economics of park design: getting more park for your money and getting more money for your park. A richly illustrated discussion on the right and wrong ways to design seating arrangements. The latest developments in the linkage of pervious pavement with storm-water management, along with issues of survival for plants in dense urban environments. Comprehensive guidelines for the client seeking a consulting designer and the designer seeking a client, from the earliest initiation to the finished product. Increased examples and discussion of the relationships and purposes of the elements of park design, as well as experts’ opinions of what makes a good park versus a great park.
