Agh! So close and yet so far. A new system called ParkScore is making its mark on American greenspaces thanks to the people at the Trust for Public Land. The system uses a complicated array of scores based on the number of parks, individual park size, ease of access and a slew of other count-ups to assemble rankings for 40 of the United States’ most well-known cities.
It’s all very algorithmic and outside my experience. But, needless to say, it paints an interesting picture of the state of parks in the U.S.
Of course New York City would be at the top of the list. Or…should be. But we’re not. Third place, actually. Ahead of us on the list are Sacramento for silver medal and San Francisco for gold. Something tells me this won’t reignite the East Coast/West Coast war for dominance we saw in the rap scene during the ’90s, but you can never be too sure of anything.
