This data might have outdated information. Data was collected in 2012. This map depicts the half mile "walkability" to parks and open space. This data is presented in the Neighborhood Vibrancy-Urban Greening Plan for the City of Salinas. Areas were calculated using a half mile (or 10-15 minute) walk distance to the nearest park or open space.

What is Urban Greening?

The Salinas Neighborhood Vibrancy – Urban Greening Program is an initiative that drives and tracks progress toward a community vision for the future of Salinas’ neighborhoods.

We are working within designated neighborhoods to develop broad, aspiration plans and goals to reach our shared neighborhood vision. Goals being considered include: Connect, Play, Create and Learn. To develop neighborhood urban designs that foster achievement of these goals, Salinas has been conducting a series of neighborhood meetings.

Preparation of the Urban Greening Plan is made possible through a grant provided by the State of California Natural Resource Agency, Strategic Growth Council. The City of Salinas applied for and was awarded a Proposition 84 Grant under the State of California’s Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006. Among other programs, Prop. 84 authorized funding to create urban greening plans to guide and coordinate urban greening projects in local California jurisdictions. Development and implementation of urban greening plans supports the State’s environmental goals and long-range policies; encourages efficient development patterns; promotes smart growth and social equity; and protects the State’s natural resources.
