Abstract: Pair a neighborhood in need of revitalization with a university program interested in partnering with their local community, mix them together, and voila! You've bridged the gap between community and university, right? Actually, it takes more effort than that, as was demonstrated by the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department Adopt-a-Park Program at Morris A. Farlow Park.
