Park Land

Published By: City of Surry,

Parks contribute to public health by providing places for recreation, exercise, and leisure. Studies show that when people have access to parks, they tend to get more exercise. Exposure to natural landscapes and greenery also contributes to psychological health. Vegetation in parks offer environmental benefits by reducing air and water pollution, providing habitat, keeping temperatures cooler, and managing stormwater run-off. The City aims to see an upward trend in parkland over time.
