     TPL put together a list of the top American cities for dog parks, and the results may surprise you. The ranking was calculated based on the number of dog parks for every 100,000 of a given city's residents, which means that even though New York City has more dog parks than any other large American city with 145 dog parks, it doesn't rank in the top ten because the metropolis, with a population of 8,679,888, only has roughly 1.7 dog parks for every 100,000 residents.
