Portland Parks Ranked 6th Best in the Nation

Congratulations to the City of Portland for ranking in the top 10 of US cities for the fifth year in a row by the Trust for Public Land! The ParkScore rating system measures whether cities are “meeting the need for parks.” It tracks access, acreage, spending, and amenities. Portland ranked high on the percent of the city’s acreage held as parkland (partially due to the 5172 acres at Forest Park), per capita spending on parks, and ease of access to parks. We also ranked high on number of dog parks.
