Remember Walkscore?  Well, that’s good.  But how about a little oxygen to fill up your lungs as you stroll through your walkable urban wasteland?  Try ParkScore, which will tell you how your city’s photosynthesis facilities and giant communal back yards compare to other those of cities.

(Then feel burning envy of Minneapolis, which rates number one in the ParkScore ratings.  According to The Atlantic: Cities, “Ninety-four percent of people in Minneapolis live within a 10-minute walk of a park, [and the] city is woven with arguably the best green space of any large metro in the country. The parks there are plentiful, they’re large, they have real amenities, and the city actually spends money on them.”)
