Available Parkland: More than 3 acres parkland per 1,000 residents
The map shows areas where residents have less than three acres of parkland per 1,000 residents (yellow) overlaid with areas that are considered low-income* (brown) and disadvantaged* (red). Most of the county contains more than three acres of parkland per 1,000 residents, however, communities near cities like Lemon Grove, Vista and El Cajon have less parkland per resident and contain more low-income communities.
*Low-income communities are at or below 80% of the California’s median income or fall below the California Department of Housing and Community Development’s (HCD) low income threshold. Census tracts are classified as disadvantaged communities based on their population’s exposure and vulnerability to pollution, among other factors. Classification uses the multi-criteria CalEnviroScreen. More information is available on the California Air Resources Board's Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Funding Guidelines for Administering Agencies page.
