Dog Parks, Splashpads and Pickleball: City Park Facts 2018

DlPIx4jUYAEygnO

Yesterday, August 22, 2018, the Trust for Public Land released the annual City Park Facts report.  Published annually since 2009 (except for 2013), City Park Facts is an almanac of facts and figures on the park systems of the one hundred largest cities in the United States. City Park Facts contains a superset of the information that we use to produce ParkScore, our annual ranking of the 100 largest U. S. city park systems, which arrives in late May.

In the past, we have produced a 36-page report with a larges number of tables filled with data on acreage, spending, amenities and more.  This year, we shifted our focus, providing a 20-page executive summary titled “the year in parks” and created separate city profile pages (see below for an example) providing details of each city park system in a very visual format.  Like past years, we provide downloadable spreadsheets with all of the facts and figures that we collect.  This all available for free at https://www.tpl.org/10minutewalk 

We welcome questions, comments, and suggestions.  Please contact us at ccpe@tpl.org
