Parks are good — but they can (and should) be better
An article in The Conversation by coauthors Julian Bolleter and Cristina E. Ramalho, an assistant professor and a research fellow at the University of Western Australia, respectively, make a case for something they call "greenspace-oriented development." The concept is similar to the much more well-known urban planning concept of transit-oriented development, which holds that communities reap substantial social, economic and environmental benefits when they place commercial and residential development within walking distance of transportation hubs such as train stations, bus stops or light rail stations. Bolleter and Ramalho believe that adding green space to this equation can boost these benefits significantly.
