Local Parks Essential

Local parks provide accessible areas for leisure, exercise, and social contact, enabling a feeling of community and a healthy way of life. These parks considerably reduce the urban heat island effect by offering shade and green space. Trees, which provide oxygen and shade, benefit the mind and the body. Recognizing the importance of trees and greenspaces is critical to a brighter future. 

Citizens actively assist by planting trees and establishing green spaces. Simple projects such as gardens provide practical green space solutions, motivating the next generation. Increasing awareness and creating conversations are critical to conserving and protecting our communities’ treasured green places. Zac Glass, an Entomologist, and Karl Lukens, a parks and recreation director, share insights on the wonders of having local parks and weigh in on the concerns related to the future and safety of local parks.
