Green Space:  The Ever-Important Role

In urban and suburban areas, the importance of green space to health and the quality of life may or may not be obvious. The communities that the CAEC serves are generally considered suburban areas with public green space available to residents in varying degrees. This advisory has been prepared to describe the overall importance of green space throughout our communities including both public lands preserved as green space, e.g. parks and greenways, and private green spaces including what an individual can do to enhance green space at a residence through natural and “green” methods.
