Hampton Roads Park Deficit Report

The Trust for Public Land conducted a study of parkland in the five major cities of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Hampton Roads has almost twice as much city shoreline as New York City and more than nine times as much city shoreline as either Boston or the three San Francisco Bay cities. Yet only 19.3 percent of Hampton Roads shoreline has parkland. This shortage deprives the region of many benefits that parks bring.
