Top 10 City for Parks


Los Penasquitos CanyonWith the nation’s largest urban park (Balboa Park), the seaside hiking trails of Torrey Pines State Reserve, and a total of 35 square miles of parkland and open space, the City of San Diego made U.S. News & World Report’s Top 10 List for Greenest Cities in America for Retirees.

San Diego was noted for its miles of trails and the presence of over 100 senior citizens organizations. The 10 Greenest Cities were selected from over 1,000 cities on the U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Places to Retire.

To give you a point of comparison, San Diego has three times as much land devoted to parkland than Chicago, another city on the Top 10 list. When you include developed parkland, San Diego’s total reaches 62 square miles or nearly 40,000 acres.
