Parks are Good for You
 
Parks play a vital role in the social, economic, and physical well-being of cities and their residents. 
  • People exercise more if they have access to safe outdoor places, which can reduce or prevent health problems.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight saves $1,500 in healthcare costs per person annually.
  • Greening of vacant urban land decreases crime.
  • Houses near parks have 5-20% higher property values.
  • Trees in urban parks remove toxins from the air that can pose serious health risks.
  • Parks help to cool cities by reducing the heat island effect.
  • Since 2000, the number of young, educated adults moving to walkable urban
    neighborhoods has increased 37%.
