The lower population means bigger yards and more space in general that is not taken up by buildings. The higher income not only generally indicates that the neighborhood will have more intricate landscaping and well-kept yards, but also that the parks in the area will most likely be safer for families and better maintained by local neighborhood committees. This is a great help to families in the area because it gives them a place in the big city to be outside enjoying the beauty of nature.
One great example of this is Garrett Park. Including basketball and tennis courts, a soccer field, walking trails, picnic areas, and a playground, it is obvious this park encourages family-friendly health and wellness.
Another great neighborhood park is Exall Park. This park features sports fields, playgrounds, grills, walking trails, and an indoor recreation center. With a playground, tennis and basketball courts, and and shaded picnic tables, it is easy to see why Cole Park also made it on this list of outstanding neighborhood parks while Dorothy and Wallace Savage Park has a more unique approach to neighborhood, largely due to the beautiful historic house directly in the center of the park.
