What the research says:
"...research shows that close proximity to green spaces is clearly associated with reduced prevalence of depression, anxiety and other health problems. Many researchers believe that outdoor play has long-term benefits for physical, social, emotional and cognitive development and fosters a sense of identity, feelings of autonomy, psychological resilience and healthy behaviors. Additionally, children who experience high levels of contact with nature have higher levels of self-worth and higher cognitive function." See more at Beyond Blue
