Community gardens

Visitacion Valley, San Francisco

A two-acre ribbon of mini-parks that stretches through the heart of Visitacion Valley and includes a community and native plant garden, gathering plaza, and children's playground.

The Trust for Public Land is committed to preserving and creating parks, natural areas, and trails in our urban communities, particularly in Denver and along the Front Range.

New York’s city-owned vacant lots and established community gardens offer the city an opportunity to address open-space inadequacy in the very inner-city neighborhoods where green space is in shortest supply. Using these resources to create open space should be a matter of public policy in New York, as it is in many other cities, including Boston, Seattle, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
