It seems there's only 2x as much as JC claims it has parkland, though I have no idea where these 189 claimed park acres are, most of our parks are tiny when you exclude state and County parks.

Here's a mine of info on parks

JC comes in nearly last in all categories when you exclude LSP.

If we have such a wealth of ballfields then we can convert the ones DT to multi-use like HP right? There's over 10k new homes being built DT and no significant new parks planned. 4 acres in Liberty N and less than 2 acres up on Coles are all I know about. Not to mention that HP draws people from outside of DT.
