analyzes public access to existingparks and open space. The analysis incorporates a two-step approach: 1)determines where there are gaps in park availability across the landscape,and 2) constructs a demographic profile to identify gaps with the mosturgent need for parkland. Park gaps are based on a service area (walkingdistance) of a half-mile radius for all parks. In this analysis, service areas are based on the street network to determine walkable distance - streets such ashighways, freeways, and interstates are not considered viable means of  walkable travel and therefore are considered to be barriers across thelandscape.Demographic profiles are based on 2010 Census block groups to determinepark need for percentage of population age 19 and younger, percentage of households with income less than 75% of city median income (Dallas lessthan $35,000), and population density (people per acre).Each profile uses the city average for that profile as the baseline fordetermining high and very high level of need as shown in the three insetmaps. High need falls below the baseline, while very high need falls abovethe baseline. The combined level of park need result shown on the large maptakes the three demographic profile results and assigns the following weights:25% = percentage of population age 19 and younger25% = percentage of households with income less than $35,00050% = population density (people per acre) Areas in dark red show a very high need for parks while areas in orange show a high need for parks.
