Creating more equitable neighborhoods by bringing life to underutilized spaces.

The focus of the Spaces to Places initiative is to support neighborhoods that are working to overcome social and economic disparities, environmental inequities, and lack of public greenspace. Vacant spaces are re-designed and then transformed, through partnerships with engaged community members, into places that improve the safety, health, and happiness of residents. We identify community priorities and develop projects that can range from edible gardens and orchards to interactive plant-filled areas with benches and chess tables.

Spaces to Places' effervescent determination to provide healthy environments for all of Cincinnati’s communities stems from the statistically-backed fact that more greenspace within a community is followed by a happier, healthier, safer, and economically sound neighborhood for its residents.
