San Francisco’s parks have been highly treasured since the gold rush, serving as jewels in the urban fabric. The Trust for Public Land and San Francisco Parks Alliance recently completed a study highlighting the systems’ economic benefits, including impacts on property value, tourism, health, community cohesion, clean water and clean air. Learn how San Francisco’s parks continue to generate irreplaceable benefits, both qualitative and quantitative, for the city.
