    Open Space Per Capita

    I am interested in finding out what is the open space per capita rate in the City or Town where you work? Please specify whether that is all open space or if it is local parks only excluding really large parks and regional open space. That would be very helpful. Thanks.

    Open space requirements

    I'ts 70-30 ratio. 30% is the minimum requirement for open space which includes roads, easements, utilities, community facilities, parks & playgrounds. Parks & playgrounds are computed based on density;
    20 and below: 3.5%
    21-25: 4%
    26-35: 5&
    36-50: 6%
    51-65: 7%
    Above 65: 9%
    Parks & playgrounds are part of the 30% open space requirements.

    Based on our recently adopted Parks and Rec Master Plan Update we have the following expressed as acres per 1000 population. We are a community of nearly 20,000.

    Mini Park - .2
    Neighborhood Park - 1.4
    Community Park - 10.5
    Golf Courses - 11.8
    Greenspace & Grounds - 2.2

    The National Average is:

    Mini Park - .25
    Neighborhood Park - 1-2
    Community Park - 5-8
    Golf Courses - NA
    Greenspace & Grounds - NA


    Hope you find this helpful
