City Park Report Season Begins in one week!

Beginning a week from today (3/23/18) we’ll going to start sharing the latest data on parks – specifically about the 100 largest U. S. cities.  The data comes from the annual city park survey that the Trust for Public Land’s Center for City Park Excellence conducts each fall.  We survey all public park agencies operating in the 100 largest cities – about 300 in all to get a sense of everything from acreage to amenities to spending.  New this year, we’ll surveyed an additional 160 plus parks non-profits in those same 100 cities.

There’s a lot to share and we’ll be doing so over the next few months, leading up to the release of City Park Facts and ParkScore in late May.

To whet your appetite, we have seen an increase in the population of the 100 U. S. cities grow by over 1 million people to 64.7 million from 63.57 million people in 2017.

Questions, comments or suggestions:  You can reach the Center for City Park Excellence at the Trust for Public Land at ccpe@tpl.org.
