Parks and recreational space are essential to healthy communities. The Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation (DPR) pursued an automated GIS approach to analyzing distribution and access to park space. Using ArcGIS Model Builder, DPR developed a set of models to more accurately spatially allocate population and determine the amount of residents served using Network Analyst service areas. The DPR uses this model to plan for future park development and amenities.
