Goodbye, San Francisco. Hello, Minneapolis.

One-half of the famous Twin Cities has taken the crown of best urban parks away from San Francisco.

The report, compiled by the Trust for Public Land, surveyed parks in the nation's 50 largest cities, according to SFist.

San Francisco, the defending champion, lost its crown after ratings for "park access, size, services, and public investment" were tallied.

Boston and San Francisco are now tied for third, according to the study.

Will things improve for the City That Knows Parks after jewels like Dolores Park have their rehab finished?
