Every park user knows the benefits of green space, especially in urban and suburban environments, but the benefits of our parks, trails, and green spaces extend far beyond users - daily they touch the lives of every person who lives  and works in the community. From improving our physical and psychological health, to strengthening our communities, and making our neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work - the benefits of parks are endless - to individuals, our communities, the economy and the environment.

Broadly defined, parks provide a diverse and quantifiable range of benefits that immeasurably improve our quality of life.

Parks are more than recreation and visual assets to communities; they are valuable contributors to larger community policy objectives, such as public health, youth development, job opportunities, social and cultural exchange, and community building.
