Park Maintenance Reporting (Local Law 98 of 2015)
Every year, NYC Parks staff expend extraordinary time and effort to keep our parks safe, attractive, and functional for the public. As per Local Law 98 of 2015, we are now compiling an annual report showing how that effort is distributed across our parks. The 2016 report includes only the 100 largest parks, and the work of sector and borough staff. The 2017 report, and all future reports, include every park, as well as the costs of work orders completed by our tradespeople and specialized crews. We hope this additional transparency can further public understanding of some of the maintenance efforts that parks receive. It has already helped us to improve our own understanding of where our data processes can improve and we look forward to producing increasingly useful reports with this data.
