The chapter explores how new administrative practices both regulated behaviour and provided opportunities for participation, popular entertainment, education and taste formation. It considers the management of parks and their users through their design and their provision of live music, sports and recreation, and visual arts and education and connects these to the production of civic identity and everyday local governance in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Finally, in the context of current local cultural policy and management strategies for public parks, the chapter asks what can be learned from the past about parks and their contribution to the cultural policies and everyday participation within contemporary cities.
