US News published a list last week of the best metro areas to live, if you love the outdoors. They rated the cities based on the number of parks in the area, as well as the percentage of total area that is comprised of Parkland. Parks considered included U.S. National Parks, State Parks and City Parks. Fresno was number one on the list!
They said; “Fresno residents benefit from access to three fairly large regional parks, including the highly praised Woodward Park. Perched on the banks of the San Joaquin River, Woodward Park comprises 300 acres of public land that features hiking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and a fenced-in dog park. Woodward Park is especially popular among bird lovers, who flock to the southeast corner for prime viewing.”
Other Cities that made the list included Toledo, El Paso and San Diego.
