Urban Planet is a daily roundup of blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.
You’re familiar with WalkScore and even the newly released BikeScore. Welcome, ParkScore! The mapping tool developed by the US Trust for Public Land allows users to develop customized maps for 40 US cities. The tool allows users to evaluate park access by neighborhood and determine where parks are still most needed. The TPL created the tool to enhance communities’ ability to lobby for more and better parks. (The Dirt)
