 A report released Wednesday from The Trust for Public Land on the nation's park systems ranks Wichita 34th out of the 50 largest U.S. cities.

ParkScore rates city park systems on a scale of zero to five park benches, with Wichita earning two. Wichita scored well on median park size but was hurt by low marks for park and playground access.
