The inner cities are brightening up with more planted trees and shrubs, flowers and natural areas for residents to enjoy. Today in America Terry Bradshaw explores the theory behind greener cities are safer cities. Safety cannot be guaranteed for anyone, but if you feel safe, you will be a bit happier where you live.
Some possibilities to think about: a local park which has a clean and safe walk/run trail as well as exercise stations, water fountains and shaded areas with benches to rest is a pleasant place for locals to enjoy the outdoors. More cities are turning run-down and degraded parts of town into a more peaceful, greener space for all to enjoy. It is a proven fact that when cities and towns make the time and effort to “green” a vacant lot or other abandoned space, the residents feel safer. When the residents feel safer, they probably will not move. If the residents do not move, more money stays in the city or town.
