San Francisco and Irvine Rated Among Nation’s Top 10 Cities for Parks

A peaceful stroll along a scenic trail surrounded by nature and open space may be just what the doctor ordered to help us cope with the pandemic.

According to the recently released Trust for Public Land Park Score index, Californians have it made when they seek solace in the great outdoors. Two California cities are among the nation’s top-10-rated for parks, based on acreage, access for residents, amenities and investment – and FivePoint is active in both.

FivePoint is creating communities in San Francisco and Irvine, which were profiled as part of the best cities for parks feature in The Washington Post. Here’s a snapshot of why these two cities were highlighted:  

San Francisco: Ranked #8, the city offers numerous parks for hiking and biking, including Golden Gate National Recreation Area (composed of 37 parks, 80,000 acres and 130 miles of trails). Many of its parks have world-class views of the city and shoreline. San Francisco is home to FivePoint’s Candlestick and The SF Shipyard communities.

Irvine: Ranked #7, Irvine has 62 miles of hiking and biking trails to serve its 300,000-plus residents, and the largest acreage of natural habitats and wild lands in Orange County. The article specifically mentions Orange County Great Park, which is adjacent to FivePoint’s Great Park Neighborhoods community.
