According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, “the average person can walk a half-mile in about 10 minutes” on sidewalks.

San Francisco has always been at the top of this list, but it moved to number one by carving out small parks in the core of the city, where there is high population density.

The city has spent $355 million in bond and general fund money over the past four years to purchase land, renovate dilapidated parks and improve open spaces. In 2012, voters passed the $195 million Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond to fix up neighborhood parks.
