In 2020 the City of Kansas City, Missouri’s Parks and Recreation created a fourth maintenance district to work towards creating a more equitable parks system. The district, in Kansas City’s lowest life expectancy zip codes – 64126, 64127, 64128, 64129, 64130, and 64132 – known as QLID (Quality of Life Investment District) is focused on park and building maintenance, forestry, and landscape improvement. In 2021, Parks and Recreation contracted with the Center for Neighborhoods to engage the communities where 38 of these parks are located to help identify the issues and develop strategies for further collaboration.
