Of the 58.6 acres in recreational space, 55+ acres are in city park areas and the remainder school property. The smaller parks in the central area are not included in this tabulation, nor is the vacant land on Lake Llano. The ratio between the number of park acres and the number of persons per thousand in the population, a measure used by cities for assessing existing space or projecting future park space, is 13.9, almost twice the nationally accepted ratio between local recreational space and the population.
