Based on in-depth surveys of park systems in the nation's 100 most populous cities, City Park Facts is the leading source of urban parks data. The annual City Park Facts report covers park acreage, spending, and accessibility as well as the number of specific types of parks in each city. The report’s data helps cities understand how their park systems excel and how they might be improved. Cities often cite the importance of the report in spurring new park efforts.

This year’s City Park Facts also includes the percentage of residents within a half mile (10-minute walk) of a park for 10 additional cities, a metric generated by The Trust for Public Land’s ParkScore® analysis.
