From the Netherlands comes another study suggesting that parks and access to nature are good for what ails you.  The strongest association between green space and health occurred within a 1 kilometer (.6 mile) radius of home and was strongest for mental health conditions.  Among physical conditions, the greatest benefit was for chronic respiratory conditions.  Periodically, TPL collects such studies for our white papers on park benefits.
