In this post, you will find great Parks Quotes from famous people, such as Pierce Brosnan, Jesse Jackson, Cesar Millan, Mike Scully, Katherine McNamara. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
Dog parks can be a fantastic way to socialize your dog, but it’s important for owners to understand that a dog park isn’t exercise and isn’t a substitute for walk. A visit to the dog park is fun – play time.
I was very active in the Parks and Recreation department. I recall a lot of the things we had to do, from the trips for the department to organizing a Little League, those sorts of things.
The making of the far-famed New York Central Park was opposed by even good men, with misguided pluck, perseverance, and ingenuity, but straight right won its way, and now that park is appreciated. So we confidently believe it will be with our great national parks and forest reservations.
My staff has been working on structural fixes to equitably help disadvantaged areas – left wanting after decades of neglect – to become complete communities with the parks, infrastructure and amenities they deserve.
In the hierarchy of public lands, national parks by law have been above the rest: America’s most special places, where natural beauty and all its attendant pleasures – quiet waters, the scents of fir and balsam, the hoot of an owl, and the dark of a night sky unsullied by city lights – are sacrosanct.
Our parks are a major part of the state’s tourism industry, and this will allow us to make them even more attractive to in-state and out-of-state visitors.
Route 192 is its own thing, and you can’t find that anywhere else. The colors and shapes of the buildings, the way that all the small businesses in a way feed off of the parks and sort of rip off the themes of Disney – you’re not going to find that anywhere else.
Southwest Detroit has been through hell (excuse my directness) with Matty Moroun, his Bridge Company, and all his fancy-named subsidiaries. From blighted homes that my boys have to walk by to allowing his trucks to rumble down our residential streets, passing our parks, schools, and homes – we have had it.
In the struggle against sexual discrimination on Wall Street, Pamela K. Martens is a latter-day Rosa Parks – a woman who, metaphorically speaking, refused to sit in the back of the bus.
Parks contribute to the health and wellbeing of our communities and are an important resource for all people, including those with special needs.
Autos for years seemed to give us freedom and independence, but when they create traffic jams and other problems in the parks, the experience of serenity in nature that visitors expect is seriously diminished, if not destroyed.
The byproduct of the main thrust to protect the biodiversity of a given place is that you get especially young people out to the parks, because it will be future generations that will have to value these landscapes and these ecosystems and make sure that nobody is changing the law.
Each year on Impact Day, I love seeing our people fill classrooms, parks, and training centers to make a difference in communities across the country.
Doing nothing to stop national parks being drilled for oil isn’t what climate leadership looks like.
Preserving parks and open spaces is a winner because it doesn’t need to be explained to everyday Americans.
The concert industry lags dramatically behind the great hospitality businesses out there, whether they’re theme parks or hotels or sporting events.
Mrs. Parks was a shy, soft spoken woman who was uncomfortable being revered as a symbol of the civil rights movement. She only hoped to inspire young people to achieve great things.
Like, on the ‘Parks And Rec’ set, I still feel like I’m a guest star. Being a fan of the show, it’s really surreal to be on the set and see that it’s not real, and getting to know the actors and they’re not their characters.
I think the people will- who advocate having a step back and read those public opinion polls on the front page of the newspapers all over this country saying public supports restoration in restoration of the Everglades, protection of the parks and the creation of monuments.
National Parks are the gold standard for conservation.
The cast of ‘Parks & Rec’ is just a group of unbelievably nice, humble, down to earth, hilarious friends.
Another example of that was that even during the economic problems of the 1945 government, we managed to carry out other aspects of our policy and other ideals. Through the establishment of national parks, for instance.
Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real adventures.
Charlottesville is a quiet town with friendly people, good schools, lots of churches, parks, and a bustling, growing community that more or less revolves around one of the country’s great public universities. Volunteerism is rampant, and dozens of nonprofits hustle about, solving problems and helping those in need.
I love going to parks.
The 5,000 or so acres of Royal Parks are one of the things that make London special.
If Rosa Parks had not refused to move to the back of the bus, you and I might never have heard of Dr. Martin Luther King.
One of my favorite things about America is our breathtaking collection of national and state parks, many of which boast wonders the Psalmist would envy.
I’m obsessed with the theme parks and themed restaurants, I love it!
These old ballparks are like cathedrals in America. We don’t have big old Gothic cathedrals like they do in Europe. But we got baseball parks.
It’s going to sound like brown-nosing, but I love ‘Parks & Rec.’
Arnold Schwarzenegger cut teacher‘s salaries and parks and libraries rather than raise taxes for the many California millionaires and billionaires.
I’m a huge fan of ‘Parks and Rec.’
Can we all admit that ‘Parks and Recreation’ is horrible? Is this something we would all know, but don’t say? Maybe everything should not be improv‘d.
Aesthetically, London is just beautiful; it’s a gorgeous city. The architecture, monuments, the parks, the small streets – it’s an incredible place to be.
National Parks are a part of the American experience. They evoke memories of childhood vacations and pride in the beauty of our national landscapes. They are also reminders that if these parks are to remain beautiful and accessible, we have a responsibility as a nation to maintain and protect them.
Connecticut has some of the best parks of any state in the country, and the State Parks system provides numerous opportunities across the state to explore the outdoors.
I like to try to capture places that a lot of people went to or have a deep emotional connection to. Malls, abandoned speedways, abandoned theme parks. To me, those are most interesting kinds of things to capture.
I just love Bayonne. I love the parks. I love the pizzerias. I love the simple things in life, and it’s all here.
I’ve searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees.
My favorite thing about Nashville is the parks.
Conservation of any endangered species must begin with stringent efforts to protect its natural habitat by the enforcement of rigid legislation against human encroachment into parks and other game sanctuaries.
As a child, I walked with my friends to Rosa Parks Elementary and then to Ben Franklin Middle School. I rode Muni to Galileo High School. And thanks to amazing teachers who believed in me and supported me along the way, I was able to matriculate to another public school: the University of California at Davis.
When I started my career, we were running around water parks and ridiculous things like that. You used to drive in dreading pre-season back then, but now you know it’s going to be pretty tough, but it’s going to be probably what you need. It’s going to be good for you instead of just slogging away.
I’ve gotten to visit all the parks and put my name inside the Fenway wall.
I think, along with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks will go down as one of the two most well-known and remembered figures out of the Civil Rights Movement.
While there’s always plenty of room for improvement, our government is actually quite effective and efficient. Our military and judicial systems and national parks are the best in the world. Unlike in countries where government corruption is rampant, I’ve never once been solicited for a bribe.
Labor should not be about creating monuments on hills or statues in parks. Labor’s monuments and statues are when a young person can find a job, when a person with disability can get access to the ordinary life that others take for granted.
The newly decorated theatres produced things like car parks and restaurants, so you could have a good night out, quite cheaply without all that bother of having to go somewhere else.
When I’m not working, I go for runs. I live around many parks, so it’s nice to feel like you’re not surrounded by the city.
Like with ‘Parks and Recreation,’ it’s so much fun because the people writing it are funny and they’re open and you just go in there and have a good time. It’s pretty much the easiest job I’ve ever had.
I can’t wait for summer in the city! I love all the free activities in the parks that become available to us New Yorkers. Yoga and movie screenings in Bryant Park, concerts in Central Park – there’s so much more available to the New York community in the summer! And everyone just seems to smile more.
If you look at NBC, two of their most successful shows – ’30 Rock’ and ‘Parks And Rec’ – are written by women, produced by women, and I think that’s the future. Women are the new men.
If an ordinary person parks outside another ordinary person’s house for a week, it’s considered stalking. If, however, that person is considered newsworthy, it’s perfectly legal for paparazzi to do the same thing.
National parks are the best expression of social equity that there is. It’s like paying our rent for living on the planet.
My favorite show is ‘Parks and Recreation.’
When I thought about Detroit, I would think big city, very urban – not a lot of places to walk around, not a lot of parks. I sort of pictured Manhattan almost, where, besides Central Park, it’s all city and big buildings. But now that I’m here, you see people pushing strollers, people hanging out in the park.
I particularly like the bookshops at National Parks and battlefields; they often have very unusual and helpful things.
Parks said, he’s guilty and that’s the end of the story.
Australia is an island surrounded by water. My fondest memories growing up were trips to the beach, walking around the harbor and playing in the beautiful parks.
Between the theme parks and the movies, the Disney iconography was probably the first set of archetypes that I was exposed to. Walt was able to expose me as a child to the full array of emotions, including fear and sorrow. Those movies and attractions haunted my dreams and made a deep impression on me as a child.
There were three Selma-to-Montgomery marches in March 1965, and Rosa Parks had missed the first one. Parks, whose act of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery bus boycott in 1955, moved to Detroit two years later for safety reasons.
Coogee is a delightful, slightly old-fashioned suburb; it has parks and gardens and reserves, a good well-kept beach, and an excellent promenade above the beach. It is a suburb for people who appreciate those aspects of life.
I think power will do anything to survive and one of its main techniques is the rule of exceptions. So it makes an exception out of people and we worship them, whether that’s Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks. These people become beatified beyond recognition.
There are too many people coming to parks doing the wrong things. They treat the parks like popcorn playgrounds. They don’t understand what the national parks mean.
I travel for theme parks.
We need to protect our wilderness areas and national parks. Everywhere you travel, you see blight, denuded mountains, logging. If people know what’s going on, they’ll become activists to safeguard those places.
Rosa Parks’ courage, determination, and tenacity continue to be an inspiration to all those committed to non-violent protest and change nearly half a century later.
This is how a revolution begins. It begins when someone grows tired of standing idly by, waiting for history’s arc to bend toward justice, and instead decides to give it a swift shove. It begins when a black seamstress named Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat on a bus to a white man in the segregated South.
Pubs would be number one. And black cabs and cabbies – moody cabbies always crack me up. And the other thing I love is the parks: the parks around London don’t get enough airtime – I think they’re sensational, and when spring hits, the first thing I’ll do is go to the park.
I’m not gregarious. I spend a lot of time in the parks when it is fine. I do know almost every blade of grass.
We are starting to see more and more Roblox games that offer creation. An example would be Theme Park Tycoon, which lets anyone construct a theme park on any device. You get to build roller coasters and theme parks, your work is saved, and when you come back, you can keep working on your creation.
Devices that allow people to shoot up to 100 rounds of ammunition at one time have no place in our schools, no place in our parks, no place on our streets, no place in our communities, and no place in this country.
Rosa Parks will be remembered for her lasting contributions to society. Her legacy lives on in the continued struggle for civil rights around the world. She will be missed.
You have independent films and independent music, but you don’t have independent theme parks – I think, in a way, Burning Man is as close, probably, as you get.
It’s all about the choices we make as a society. We can choose to have poor schools and parks and higher tuition at Rhode Island‘s colleges. But we should make an active choice.
When your heart speaks to you about what you need to do to sustain life on this planet, listen to it, make a difference, and be an inspiration for generations to come. Be inspired by people like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Christopher Reeve, Albert Schweitzer, Helen Keller, and many others.
The World’s Fair was the precursor to theme parks like Disneyworld, and the really sort of cheap, superficial promotional architecture that you see everywhere in the U.S. I think there’s a danger when you start creating a civilisation that isn’t meant to last.
‘Parks and Rec’ is definitely a mainstream show – the group that watches it on TV on Thursday night is small, but the audience that watches it on things like Hulu, Netflix, and Tivo is enormous.
Growing up, I was a parks and recs kid.
I don’t see any justification for the federal government owning land, other than the Statue of Liberty and maybe a few parks, maybe a few refuges. But to just own land to do nothing with it I think is a disservice to the Constitution.
I have a different relationship with Chucky because he’s been on top of my bookshelf in the corner of my living room for my entire life. He was a great tool for scaring friends, and when I see him in different theme parks I’ve been to, or in commercials, my heart swells a little bit, and I’m like, ‘Aww! It’s my Chucky!’
In the traditional modernist planning that created the suburbs, you put residential buildings in suburban neighborhoods, office spaces into brain parks and retail in shopping malls. But you fail to exploit the possibility of symbiosis or synthesis that way.
Not far from my apartment, within a stretch of no more than 500 feet, there are two doggie gyms where Gotham’s canines who aren’t getting enough exercise running through the city’s parks, or are neglecting their all-important doggie glutes and abs, can go for a workout. What can I say? This appalls me.
I love London, even though the weather‘s not great. I’ve travelled the world and I’ve lived in Paris, Germany, Los Angeles and New York but I love the parks, the theatre and the Britishness and the way that all these communities have integrated.
National parks are cathedrals of spirituality and emotion, and unfortunately, they are being loved to death by many of the same people who enjoy them the most.
My father’s a fanatic for national parks, and every childhood trip was pretty much to national parks.
Her continuity – you know, if you connect Harriet Tubman, who died in 1913, to Rosa Parks, born in 1913, you get this extraordinary spectrum of the African-American experience.
The National Parks are overlooked and underrated, and they shouldn’t be.
Teachers can go on cruises with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and anyone can spend the summer as a volunteer in a National Parks and even earn money doing it.
Young people think Rosa Parks just sat down on a bus and ended segregation, but that wasn’t the case at all.
