Is there a public park within walking distance of where you live?
Depends if you want to walk 1 mile on a road with no sidewalk and a speed limit of 55 MPH.
We live adjacent to Kent Park a 1052 acres of woods and trails, with camping and swimming facilities.
We have a nice private park & playground in our subdivision for our HOA member families & friends.
There's literally one right behind my house.
Everywhere is within walking distance if you have enough time
I live in the middle of nowhere so everywhere is basically a park
I live in an area between a small town and farmland. No parks within walking distance.
There is a small park with a playground several miles away, but it doesn't have a walking trail, and it would be dangerous to try to walk to it due to traffic.
You have to get in the car to go most places in AL!
my town is like three miles across though, so most things are in walking distance
No public parks but there's a private park in my housing community.
At least 5 I'm thinking.
A small one
Question semirelated to this. What is considered walking distance? Because im sure its different fir everyone
I guess, then when considering yes or no given the individuals ability to walk any given distance the answer still would be yes or no. Wouldn't it?
I just ran there earlier today actually.
Out here on the West Coast some of us remember that our ancestors walked across the country.
The entire state is a park.
Quantify "walking distance".
Agreed. The closest one from my house is a bit 2.5 miles away. Walkable in a bit over an hour.
Yes it's a mile and a half but it's walkable.
There's a park in my neighborhood, but I believe it's only for residents.
3 blocks from Central Park.
The nearby town has a small park in it, really more of a playground with a few benches and tables, so yes. But really the whole area is practically a park, with many trailheads (and trails) within a few miles.
Nope. We made the upgrade further away from the blight. My property is my own park.
Big park with a pool, water slide, volleyball pit etc. The other way is a park and a dog run.
I live in Chicago, there's parks everywhere!
Yes, at least three.
Living in base housing. The playground and basketball court are right outside my back yard.
Yes! Just down the street. I walk there daily, as it it is gorgeous and right on the river.
Over mile, hike. No.
There's a public park exactly 5 miles from our house. How did you know that?
My "walking range" is several miles, so I'm not sure how to address this question. There are 2 medium-sized parks and a nature trail within 1 mile of my domicile, so I said "yes"
Yes, right down the street. Less than a mile.
Yes several. But my husband and I like to take long walks.
It's about 5 miles. I wouldn't want to walk there and back, but I could. Trip back would be uphill...
Right next to my house.
Ya, but pretty much the whole city is "in walking distance" soooo...
There's a small one adjacent to the creek that runs through my part of town. Typical parks with sports fields, etc. are slightly beyond walking distance.
Botanical gardens, big park and thousands of acres of state forest.
Yes, it's the go-to place for hard drugs and gay sex. 10/10 would recommend!
Yes. There is a large county park across the road from by residence.
Yes. There's a good sized park with a small pond, a soccer field, tennis courts and a children's' playground about half a mile away, and several larger ones within two miles. Plus many smaller pocket parks or green areas in all neighborhoods, including one across the road from my apartment complex.
There is also an extensive network of trails throughout the city for walking, jogging and biking, mostly located along streams and all somewhat "natural" in nature, plus other "natural" areas, one of which is quite large and just a block away from me. Some of the trails are also within easy walking distance. I make more use of the trails and natural areas than I do of the parks.
Yes. My city has a park in every neighborhood. I have several within walking distance.
No park but lots of national forest.
