Urban parks and nature offer plenty of benefits that are especially important during a pandemic

In urban environments, parks are particularly important to human health and well-being. Spending time in parks and green spaces clearly benefits urban dwellers' psychological, emotional and overall well-being. It reduces stress, improves cognitive functioning and is associated with improved overall health. 

Government agencies should work to make these vital services as widely available as possible, especially during stressful periods like pandemic shutdowns. Certain types of public green spaces, such as botanical gardens, arboretums and wide trails, are well suited to maintaining social distancing rules. Urban parks and nature offer plenty of benefits that are especially important during a pandemic.
