Urban parks in Massachusetts provide people with opportunities for exercise, recreation, community building, and spiritual renewal in nature, just as they do nationwide. They also reduce crime, revitalize neighborhood economies, and create cool “islands” during hot summer days.  The Trust for Public Land creates city playgrounds and protects open space in Commonwealth cities to ensure everyone has a close to home place for recreation and renewal.
