Best Cities 2010: 5 Worst Cities for Recreation
The bottom cities on our list need more green spaces for families. What do you think: did we get it right?
Of the cities and towns we surveyed, these 5 are most in need of more outdoor recreation spaces, like pools, playgrounds and parks. No surprise: major cities with a dearth of space rank low on our list.

(Our list was compiled by using a list of the top 100 cities by population, adding in well-known smaller cities too, and removing cities so close to other large cities that they would have similar data. We ranked the best cities for recreation based on the amount of parkland per 100,000 people.)
Philly's got it covered when it comes to historical sites, but when it comes to park space per person, more room for kids to run around would be nice.
