MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Trust for Public Land released its annual rankings Wednesday morning. After 6 straight years on top, Minneapolis fell to third this year.

Washington, D.C. took over the top spot on the list. D.C. had a slightly higher percentage of residents that lived within a 10 minute walk of a park.

While Minneapolis scored perfectly in the investment category and nearly perfect in access, the city scored lower in the acreage and amenities.

St. Paul, however, held strong in second place.
