The Trust for Public Land this week released their 2011 City Park Facts. The report discloses a variety of public park-related data from America's 100 largest cities. As USA Today has already noted, the fastest-growing park type in the country is now dog parks:

There were 569 off-leash dog parks in the 100 largest cities in 2010, a 34 percent jump in five years. Parks overall increased only 3 percent in that time.

But how do cities stack up on a variety of park types? The graphs below show the top 10 cities in each of six categories.
