One in three Americans doesn’t have access to a park within a 10-minute walk of home. You can help us change that. Support Our Work
We’re partnering with a powerful group that understands the value parks provide: mayors. Nearly 300 mayors, representing 57 million people in cities nationwide, have signed on to support our vision that everyone has a park within a 10-minute walk of home.
Our ParkScore® index rates park systems across the U.S. by comparing five categories: equity, access, investment, amenities, and acreage. Data from this powerful tool gives communities the information they need to help close the park equity gap. See how your city stacks up and where help is needed. You might be surprised by what you learn.
Lexington, Kentucky, and other cities are taking a critical look at land use, planning, and funding policies with fresh eyes. As they tackle the challenges of rapid growth, they’re simultaneously re-thinking how to develop and grow in a more equitable way. TPL is helping them.
