Open Space Maps - Bronx

Open Space Maps - Bronx
          

Below are maps outlining the areas identified as underserved or well-served by open space for each community district in the Bronx. Some community districts contain both underserved and well-served areas, while others do not have any underserved or well-served open space areas. 

  • Underserved areas are areas of high population density in the City that are generally the greatest distance from parkland where the amount of open space per 1000 residents is currently less than 2.5 acres.
  • Well-served areas
    • Have an open space ratio above 2.5 accounting for existing parks that contain developed recreational resources; or
    • Are located within 0.25 mile (approximately a 10-minute walk) from developed and publicly accessible portions of regional parks.

For the methodologies used to identify underserved and well-served areas. 

 

THRESHOLDS FOR ASSESSMENT:

  • If a project is located in an underserved area, an open space assessment should be conducted if that project would generate more than 50 residents or 125 workers. 
  • If the project is located in a well-served area, an open space assessment should be conducted if that project would generate more than 350 residents or 750 workers in a well-served area. 
  • If a project is not located within an underserved or well-served area, an open space assessment should be conducted if that project would generate more than 200 residents or 500 employees.
