The Community Outreach team at USC Environmental Health Centers has developed this infographic to provide an overview of the research on health benefits of parks for children and communities.
We also highlight the racial disparities in Los Angeles County in access to parks and green space – and the potential risks for siting parks too close to busy roadways.
The infographic includes interactive links that lead to useful information. For example, in the TREE section, the health benefits are linked to specific research articles. Links to websites and social media are also interactive. For a list of all of the references in one place, click here.
This infographic is also available in Spanish.
