Description: ParkServe® includes a comprehensive standardized database of local parks in the 13,913 cities, towns and communities. In phase one, census designated urban areas were used to define where to collect and create local data for cities, towns and communities. For each city, town and community, geographic boundaries were obtained from the US Census 2010 Places geospatial dataset and associated population estimates are derived from ESRI’s 2017 Demographic Forecasts. The ParkServe® team attempted to contact each city, town and community with a request for their parks data. If no GIS data was provided, the ParkServe® team created GIS data for the place based on available resources, such as park information from municipal websites, GIS data available from counties and states, and satellite imagery.
