Where Is the Access? Making San Francisco's Parks More Equitable

Digital Discourse

San Francisco is known for its beautiful parks and open space, and their importance to social and physical wellbeing has only been emphasized by the pandemic. However, racist land use and housing laws and practices have led to inequitable access to safe parks and open space. According to a recent study by the Trust for Public Land, San Francisco's communities of color had 56 percent less nearby park space than white neighborhoods. Learn how community organizations in San Francisco are creating out-of-the-box solutions to provide opportunities for people of color, especially families and children, to enjoy parks and open space.
