CONCLUSION
City parks improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our
communities, and make our cities and neighbourhoods more attractive places to
live and work. Numerous studies have shown the social, environmental,
economic, and health benefits parks bring to a city and its people. For example,
they attract tourists, serve as community signature pieces, offer a marketing tool
for cities to attract businesses and conventions and host festivals, concerts and
athletics events.
