Making Healthy Places: Designing and Building for Health, Well-being, and Sustainability
This book follows the authors’ “Urban Sprawl and Public Health” to examine the pressing need to create healthy places and reduce the health threats inherent in places already built. Drawing on the latest scientific evidence, with contributions from experts in a range of fields, “Making Health Places” imparts a wealth of practical information and demonstrated and promising solutions to commonly occurring problems.
We recommend that parents encourage kids to get outdoors. Daily access to backyard playground equipment or playground equipment in a local park is a great resource and asset to explore.
