Fresno does not have enough park space. In 2015, the city’s proud accomplishment was going from dead last in the nation in parks….to tied with dead last, in a ranking developed by the Trust for Public Land. In 2016, the city “rose” to 3rd from the bottom.
But only because the ranking system expanded.
2012 – 40th out of 40
2013 – 50th out of 50
2014 – 60th out of 60
2015 – 74th out of 75
2016 – 97th out of 100
Oh, and the last two cities were last because they failed to respond to the survey.
