The importance of properties with outdoor spaces in promoting improved health and happiness has long been recognised, and studies have proved positive relationships between green space and general well-being.
The various health, social and financial benefits of access to green and outdoor space are particularly emphasised when regarding play space for children and young people. The advantages of children having the opportunity to play in natural environments include the development of social skills, language and comprehension, physical activity, improved physical and mental health and environmental learning.
