​Designs That Connect People to Nature

A well designed outdoor space can make a park, green space or public garden more inviting to the community. It can increase safety and accessibility, provide economic and social benefits and reflect the character of the local community.

This guide includes a handful of examples and photos meant to inspire and tell the story of green spaces that are integral parts of a local community.

The icons found next to the examples are a quick way of demonstrating the multiple benefits and approaches to nearby nature and communities.
