Recent and compelling research indicates that access to parks and green space can promote the health and well-being of individuals of all ages. The public health implications of better park access include increased physical activity, decreased obesity, reduced stress, and improved mental health. Beyond promoting healthy behaviors and outcomes, parks offer opportunities for communities to gather and build stronger connections.
