San Francisco Chronicle

 San Francisco is praised for becoming the first city in the US to have a public park within 10-minutes walking distance from every home, regardless of neighborhood. KOMPAN is proud to have helped achieve this standard with several playgrounds throughout the San Francisco region. The achievement symbolizes, not only environmental awareness, but equal access for all, regardless of income level, and equal "livability" for all, as stated by the director of city park development. He is also quoted as saying, "These parks are not just nice amenities... They are very important for public and environmental health. Parks make for better and strong communities.”
