Building a More Inclusive System of Parks and Public Lands

Report: Building a More Inclusive System of Parks and Public Lands for the National Park Services Centennial By Jenny Rowland. In the 100th year of the National Park Service, America’s parks and public lands are more popular than ever. Visits to national parks have reached record-breaking levels, with more than 307 million visitors in 2015. However, a new analysis finds that communities of color and low income communities in the West have disproportionately less open space and natural areas nearby than does the overall population in their states. Nearly 84 percent of communities of color and 80 percent of low-income communities in the West live in areas where the proportion of remaining natural area is lower than the state average.
