Inside City Parks examines ground-breaking data on city parks to determine what works and what doesn't in the nation's 25 largest metropolitan areas. Useful to public officials and open-space advocates who want to know how their city compares to others, the book presents the first statistics ever published on the funding, operations, and size of parkland and recreation services; highlights innovative programs and trends; and explores how parks are affected by the many public and private forces at work in the urban core.
Organized by city, the book covers park systems in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, and Tampa.
