The Economic Benefits of Parks in New York City report details the true economic value of all NYC’s outdoor green spaces. While previous studies have investigated the economic impact of individual parks, the Economic Benefits of Parks in New York City is the first benefit study of the city’s entire integrated park system.
Buffalo has some great parks, but they could be even better. Trust for Public Land partnered with Mayor Byron W. Brown and the City of Buffalo, and Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation to release the Buffalo Parks Master Plan, the city’s first comprehensive parks plan in 40 years. While nearly 89% of residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park, the Master Plan highlights targeted improvements to increase equitable access, add amenities like picnic areas and walking trails, enhance park safety with better lighting, and more, all to improve the Buffalo parks we know and love.
