Parks for People–New York City
New York City has beautiful parks, but too few are in the city's lowest-income neighborhoods. According to the City of New York Department of Planning, 16 of the 18 lowest income neighborhoods offer less than adequate green space.
Since 1978, The Trust for Public Land has helped create, protect, and revitalize more than 290 parks, playgrounds, community gardens, and natural areas in New York City. This work represents an investment of more than $200 million in land purchases and in the design, construction, and stewardship of these important community resources.
