A new national ranking of American cities shows Fresno is making progress in providing access to public parks and green space.
However, the gains are limited. The city moved from last place in 2014 to tied for last this year.
Abby Martin with the Trust for Public land, which releases a yearly ranking of 75 US cities, says several new parks set to open this year helped Fresno’s score.
“Out of 100 points, this year Fresno scored 31. As opposed to last year where Fresno scored 26 points,” Martin said.
