A national study that scores the park systems in America’s 100 largest cities finds that Cleveland is moving up in the ranks.

The city’s parks ranked 37th in this year’s Trust for Public Land study, up eight places from last year. The rankings are based on park access, acreage, amenities and spending.

The group’s Ohio director, Shanelle Smith, says splash pads helped Cleveland improve its score.
