Latino Park Access: Examining Environmental Equity in a “New Destination” County in the South

Abstract

This paper examines Latino migration to a “new destination” county in the southeastern U.S., Hall County, Georgia, where environmental equity is considered in terms of Latino communities’ walking access to public and private parks in the county. Park access is considered an environmental equity or justice issue because some research shows less park acreage available to minority and immigrant communities, compared to communities where residents are mostly white and U.S. born.
