Minneapolis Repeats as Nation’s Best Park System

Minneapolis has the best park system in the United States, according to The Trust for Public Land’s 7th annual ParkScore® index. “Minneapolis will always be a great city in a park. From quality of life, to safe recreational space, to tourism—our parks are critical to who we are as a city. I’m thrilled that our park system continues to earn accolades. We have world class parks and the world is taking notice,” added Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. Since 2015, Minneapolis and Saint Paul have taken the top two spots on the ParkScore® index.
