Using information from the Pentagon City Planning Study process, U.S. Census data, and county data on parks, recreational facilities, parking lots, and buildings, we evaluate access
for open public space for Pentagon City. We show that current plans lead to a significant reduction in unrestricted, unreserved open public space in the area, particularly for low-income
residents. Moreover, we show that plans for Hopper Park do not ameliorate the area's needs.
