(4) Dallas

Dallas, Texas, finished first overall in the public space, sports and gaming category, and placed second in entrepreneurship.

Klyde Warren Park opened in October 2012 as part of Dallas' commitment to beautifying the city of 1.2 million people. Built over an eight-lane freeway, the five-acre park connects the city's Uptown neighborhood with the Dallas Arts District and downtown.

The green space has 37 native plant species and 322 trees, creating an urban oasis where there was once only traffic and fumes.
