CUEL Work on Greenspace

CUEL investigates open space and park holdings in cities and the extent to which low income and minority urban residents can readily access such lands. These investigations build on the Golden Gate University School of Law City Parks Project’s 2007 publication Access to Parkland: Environmental Justice in East Bay Parks. CUEL’s work includes research on the prospects for transforming portions of the former Alameda Naval Air Station (in the East Bay flatlands) into a landmark bayfront natural park.
