The Trust for Public Land’s Climate-Smart Cities program has been working with cities to plan comprehensive active transportation networks that allow people to reach destinations by bike and foot safely and conveniently. This report, developed in partnership with ICF International, describes our methodology for assessing the environmental, public health, and economic benefits of active transportation investments.
San José, northern California’s largest city and home to many of Silicon Valley’s largest employers, has a large natural and developed park system that provides beauty, recreational opportunities, access to nature, and positive environmental impacts to residents, workers, and tourists alike.
The Johnson County Park & Recreation District (JCPRD) was established in 1955 and is the only special park district in Kansas. By providing park areas and access to an array of outdoor activities, JCPRD generates numerous economic benefits within the local community.
Working from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land helps communities raise funds, conduct research and planning, acquire and protect land, and design and renovate parks, playgrounds, trails, and gardens.
