For many residents of large cities, the city neighborhood public park has supplanted the backyard of yesteryear. Four seasons a year, the local park provides recreation, whether it’s swimming, cross-country skiing, softball, football or more.

Studies have shown a home near green space is linked to myriad positive health outcomes, among them reduced risk of Type II diabetes, heart disease and pre-term births, as well as premature death. Proximity to trees, foliage and green grassy acreage also ushers in lower stress levels, improved sleep while improving feelings of good health.
