Parks Standards Annual Report FY 2009-10Park increase scores citywide for fifth year, but disparities remain between districtsNovember 3, 2010Purpose of the Report
The City Services Auditor Charter Amendment requires that standards be established for park maintenance,and that the City Services Auditor (CSA) issue an annual report on performance under these standards. Thisreport provides the results from evaluations of all open City parks in the fiscal year (FY) 2009-10.
Park scores increased for the fifth consecutive year. The citywide average for park scores increased over theprevious year from 87.3 percent to 89.7 percent. A score above 85 percent would generally indicate that a parkis well maintained and that its features are in good condition.
Citywide results
Over half of all parks score above 90 percent, while in FY 2005-06, only a quarter of all parks scored above90 percent.
Children’s Play Areas all score above 80 percent according to both the San Francisco park standardsevaluation criteria and the Neighborhood Parks Council Playground Initiative survey.
