You want nature, but you don’t live next to a ravine. High park is a bit too west, and Rouge park a bit too east. You work downtown, so you live nearby with a small family in a condo that barely has a balcony.
There’s no question that green spaces have environmental benefits. They are associated with improved air quality, relief from extreme heat, and mitigate the negative impacts of heavy rainfall events. But not everyone has the space to do their part in advocating for green goodness on private property.
According to Green Sights Report, 95% of people agree that green spaces are an integral part of our identity, and a variety of health reports suggest that the presence of green space is associated with improved way of life.
