The Trust for Public Land To Launch Park Information Database

The Trust for Public Land To Launch Park Information Database
The Trust for Public Land announced it will unveil ParkServe™, a new, interactive platform that tracks urban park access nationwide, in spring 2017.

When completed in 2018, ParkServe will include data from 13,931 cities and towns, covering more than 80% of the U.S. population. The web-based tool will let people locate the park nearest to them, determine the percentage of residents who live within a 10-minute walk of a local park, and identify the neighborhoods most in need of new parks. When it launches next spring, ParkServe will include data from the first 5,046 cities covering approximately 45% of the U.S. population.

ParkServe builds on the success of The Trust for Public Land’s widely-acclaimed ParkScore® index, which ranks park systems in the 100 largest U.S. cities. Like ParkScore, ParkServe will be a free, publicly accessible, web-based system. Anyone can visit the ParkServe site, and after a few keyboard clicks, will receive an extraordinary amount of information and data on parks previously available only to well-funded municipal park researchers.
