How well do you know your city parks?

Each year, The Trust for Public Land compiles the City Parks Facts report—the nation’s most complete compilation of data about urban parks in the nation’s largest 100 cities.

The report calculates several measures of how city park systems serve their citizens, including the number of residents within a 10-minute walk of a park. Using precise, computerized mapping technology, The Trust for Public Land analyzes access to city park systems—even factoring in barriers such as highways, railroad tracks, and unbridged rivers.
