    Summary: 
    "The landscape of Minneapolis and Saint Paul was once that of a tall grass prairie with few trees and marshy lakes. Today the cities are regarded as some of America's great green cities with tree-lined parkways, public-owned lake shores and vibrant neighborhood parks. How did the Cities create a one of a kind park system? Parks for the People tells the surprising story of the origins and evolution of the park systems of the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. With a landscape that includes the Minnehaha Falls, Como Lake, the Chain of Lakes, and the Mississippi river, Minneapolis and St. Paul always possessed remarkable natural features. But what few know is how it took vision, leadership, and civic will to protect, acquire, preserve, enhance and maintain these important amenities. Through revealing history, High Definition videography, and nostalgic imagery, Parks for the People recounts how these places came to be and the unique place the Twin Cities park systems hold in the American Landscape."--Tpt web site.
