6 Good Reasons to visit your Neighborhood Park - LocalCircles Blog

As our cities become more congested with endless suburban development, and many of the vacant lots of our youth having disappeared, do we truly appreciate its full impact on children.

In most Delhi/NCR area communities, or even across the country it is becoming rarer to find neighborhood parks that offer unstructured play opportunities for children, passive recreation for all age-groups, and are within walking distance of their homes. Here are 6 good reasons why visiting your local parks can be good for you —

Parks are Healthy Recreational Spaces

Neighborhood parks and playgrounds are ideal hangouts and an important component of the built environment for physical recreation and activities. One study indicates the perceived benefits of local parks that help promote physical activities among residents and are an important factor in the improvement of their general well-being. In addition, how well-used a park is can enhance the overall vigorous physical activity, including more sedentary social gathering such as picnics, or a place to meet for mother with young kids.

When kids at park use it for running, playing and climbing it keeps them healthy, fit and improve their motor skills and also help in concentrating in their studies. But wait! It’s not just healthy for them; it’s healthy for you too. When kids exert, they get tired and sleep well at Nap time (Smart Move, Mom!). As a mother you can too take advantage of any surrounding walking paths, and walk yourself towards a healthier you.

Did I say that it’s absolutely Free?

Cost of Living is on the rise and fun can be expensive. But, paying a visit to your neighborhood park is absolutely FREE! A little SPF 50, a few munchy snacks, a healthy drink and you’re good to go!

Parks are Good for the Community

Parks create a sense of community. Many of us parents can recall vividly the days we spent at these parks and got to know other kids in the neighborhood. Research also shows that relationship between neighbors’ are made stronger through the mere presence of a simple structured vegetation cover.

Ladies can spend their moments in a likeable group or in exchanging views on common issues/topics. Outdoor jogging walks and yoga classes are other ways for people to find an ideal rejuvenation of the mind-body-soul. Besides, sometimes the occasional burst of roaring laughter from ‘laughing club members’ is a head turner.

Parks as a place for Social Exchange

Visiting parks can be a ground for social exchange – also for shared joys and sorrows. A park helps in bridging communities with visitors from every social strata and age group congregating, and with informal exchange or meeting.


Parks are Good for the Environment

The potential, that parks are good for environment has been acknowledged a number of times. You can skip the car, get your heart tick more and walk to come to the parks in your area. You save gas and carbon emissions in a green, lush, well-laid park, (and stay local). You can teach community service to kids, by spending a few minutes to clear up wrappers, or polythenes cleaning up any garbage you may find at the park. Finally, you have great lungs as you get to inhale more Oxygen!

Parks are Good for You

This holds true when kids are in a manageable age, when they can scot around in free-play in an enclosed park, giving you an opportunity to relax and unwind. Other things I especially like is to bring in my ‘Orhan Pamuk’ novel to read, lay out on the grass or simply stretch out on a winter noon day. You can chill, unwind, relax, or just catch up with a friend in a park close to you.

So what’s your favorite thing about going to your neighborhood park?
