Parks

Good parks improve the quality of life in a downtown, serving as oases in a densely built environment.  They are good for the public health, as they encourage physical activity and draw people out of their cars, offices and homes.  They are crucial to the air quality, as their greenery filters pollution and minimizes the urban heat effect, and they play an increasingly important role in stormwater management.  With green space at a premium, even a small pocket park can make a neighborhood more livable and enhance property values and rents.
