park score study
During August and September 2011, the Green Vision Team researched the Park Score of every city in Orange County. These scores demonstrate how many acres of parkland there are per 1,000 residents.
Park Scores assess whether or not there is adequate park space in a specific area. Areas with less than 3 acres of parkland per thousand residents are considered park poor.
We calculated the Park Score three different ways. The first analysis included city-owned protected parkland and beaches, with full or restricted access. The second analysis included city- and county-owned parkland. The final analysis included all publicly owned (local, regional, state and federal) parkland or beaches with full or restricted access and including lands privately conserved by non-governmental organizations.
