Green space

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Land left untouched, or with tended grass and other plants, enriches a city, provides habitat for animals, helps to control the natural water cycle, and helps to moderate temperatures (partly by reducing the urban heat island effect).

On a larger scale, restrictions on development in green belts help to protect the environment, prevent poorly planned urbanization, and provide a refuge for animals that may be endangered due to human activity.
