Ann Arbor has joined The Trust for Public Land, National Recreation and Park Association and Urban Land Institute in a “10-minute walk” parks advocacy campaign. The campaign calls for a high-quality park or natural area to be within a 10-minute walk (roughly a quarter mile) of all U.S. residences. “Accessibility to parks and nature truly plays an important role in both the overall quality of life for those who live here as well as in the vibrancy that attracts industry and visitors to our city,” said Parks and Recreation Manager Colin Smith, adding that Ann Arbor currently has 157 municipal parks, with the majority of Ann Arborites living within a quarter-mile of one of them.
