If Minneapolis had been ranked, we would have been at the top.
Minneapolis was not included in the recently published ParkScore rankings because: “The Trust for Public Land analyzed the park systems of the 40 largest cities by population within the city boundary. Some large metropolitan areas were not included because the core city is too small to rank within the largest 40 cities. These cities include Cincinnati, Cleveland, Miami, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis.”
San Francisco was ranked highest according to this study. If Minneapolis had been included, we certainly would have been ranked in the top 5, if not higher. There were five areas measured, and for comparison, I found statistics for Minneapolis for two of the areas:
|Park Land as

|Spending per resident||$291.66||<$200|
