Landscape Structures-sponsored Keynote Ian Hill addresses power of recreation and parks

Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its New England playground consultant, M.E. O’Brien & Sons, Inc., is scheduled to exhibit at the 64th Annual Northern New England Recreation & Parks Conference Jan. 8, in Bartlett, N.H. The conference will feature Ian Hill, one of North America's foremost advocates for the recreation and parks profession, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2012-2013 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

In his keynote address, Ian will address the power and potential of recreation and parks. He will make the case that for those in the sector to seize and realize the potential of recreation and parks they must have the ability to form partnerships and build consensus, to inspire and move others towards a common goal, and tap into the collective intelligence and energy of all stakeholders and act as a catalyst to get things done. Attendees will leave this keynote address energized, inspired and equipped to take on the challenges that they face in the changing times.

The 75-minute session will be presented on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 1 p.m. Following the session, delegates will have the opportunity to visit M.E. O’Brien & Sons and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall to learn about the latest trends in playground design including custom and theme designs, concrete as a playground material and creating truly inclusive play environments.
