Kids exploring parks

Parks for health and wellbeing

Natural places, such as parks, are a source of health and wellbeing for adults and children.

Time in nature has been associated with positive impacts on mental health, stress reduction, obesity, creativity, imagination, and connection to ourselves and the world around us. It can also reduce our screen time:

‘Unlike television, nature does not steal time; it amplifies it’
Richard Louv (2005)

Learning about these natural environments can help us understand, appreciate, and protect them. The kids exploring parks packs are a great way to get out into nature and be inspired by all the things you will discover!
