AlmsPark
Great news – Cincinnati was ranked by The Trust for Public Land as #7 for best parks among the 75 largest U.S. cities!

To create the rankings a “ParkScore” was created and ranked:

  • How many people are able to reach a park within a 10-minute walk
  • Acreage of parks
  • Parks per resident (Cincinnati got a maximum score for this!)
  • Amenities such as dog parks, playgrounds and rec centers

Cincinnati has a public park within a 10-minutes walk (half mile) of all of its residents. The median park size is 4.5 acres. There are 5 regional and 70 neighborhood parks and 34 nature preserves as well as 5 nature centers and 1 arboretum. Cincinnati’s parks equate to 10% of the city’s land.
