We looked at all apartments in Omaha and rated them on the number of parks within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, parks across the street from a specific property would carry more weight than parks a quarter-mile away. Our park counts come from commercially available listings.
