Re: Parks are important
It might be useful to rework the priorities in terms of what priorities might be served by parks. In other words, not everyone may see the link between parks and overall city health and tourism. These kinds of connections may help give parks a higher priority.

Re: Parks are important
I think we are all into the "green-wagon" however, as richheap mentions, we may differ vastly when ranking them among other city needs. However, we might need some value grader that might be nonexistent, just like when we were talking about what's green? regarding buildings.

Re: Parks are important
I agree, but I'd also be interested to see how people rank city parks against other city priorities. Transportation, energy infrastructure, improved sanitation, business-friendly policies, green policies and new homes are also all very important to cities. 

I said city parks are 'very important' to me, but there are other things that are very important to me too. City parks wouldn't be top, but may creep into the top five.

Re: Parks are important
I truly can't imagine my life without parks. The trees are so important for our health and overall well being. Living in NYC I am so grateful to have a gorgeous park just steps away from my house and Central Park right across a few avenues. I love the green, trees, the flowers and even the basketball hoops & my favorite, the swings!

Parks are important
It's great to see that so far, respondents put parks in a place of honor when it comes to importance. No one has said they are not important. I hope that trend continues in this poll.
