Cities with the best (and worst) access to public parks

Associate Professor Rumi Chunara commented on the positive effects of  incorporating green spaces into cities. “The research shows green spaces have a wide-ranging impact on our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. In cities, a lot of natural land gets covered with buildings, pavement and things that absorb heat more. Having green spaces can mitigate all of those things. It's really important for the planet and the city as a whole,” said Chunara.
