Connected neighbourhoods are not only safe neighbourhoods for children, they are also healthy places for all

“In my mind, our neighbourhoods are the most important outdoor play resource we can give our children. They need it to grow super happy healthy and strong. They need it to support their overall healthy development across the total span of childhood”.
