First, in parks usually grows big trees and most part is unpaved ground. These certainly absorbs water as trees and grass are a far more efficient – and less expensive – method of managing storm water than sewers and drainage ditches made of concrete.

Second, parks provide space for neighbourhood residents to interact with each other and meet new people. They’re also great spaces for events and for people to engage in recreational activities. This allows people to develop a sense of community. A park is perfect for a picnic, concert, or social gathering – whatever your community feels it needs. Increasing the number of parks and recreational facilities in a neighbourhood also resduces crime rates, especially among youth. By giving young people a safe place to interact with one another, it will keep them off the streets and out of trouble.

Furthermore, trees can remove a wide variety of pollutants from the air. Air pollution can increase risk of certain cancers and have adverse effects on children, the elderly and anyone with underlying respiratory problems. It also reduces the distance you can see on summer day and increases the mortality rate in highly polluted cities.

Parks make a neighbourhood more enjoyable to walk through and provide space for popular sports, encouraging physical activities. They provide jogging trails and other amenities designed to get people active. Besides, it is quite obvious that parks where people are able to make connections, meet new friends and participate in recreational activities are also good for the locals’ mental health.
