Title: Latino Park Access: Examining Environmental Equity in a â€śNew Destinationâ€ť County in the South
Author: Johnson-Gaither, Cassandra
Source: Journal of Park and Recreation Administration 29(4):37-52
Description: This paper examines Latino migration to a â€śnew destinationâ€ť county in the southeastern U.S., Hall County, Georgia, where environmental equity is considered in terms of Latino communitiesâ€™ walking access to public and private parks in the county. Park access is considered an environmental equity or justice issue because some research shows less park acreage available to minority and immigrant communities, compared to communities where residents are mostly white and U.S. born.
Keywords: Latino migration, park access, environmental equity
