According to researchers at the University of Washington, living near green space provides you incredible benefits, including …

– An experience that restores the mind from the mental fatigue of work or studies, contributing to improved work performance and satisfaction.

– Access to calming and inspiring environments that encourage learning, inquisitiveness and alertness.

– The opportunity for physical activity – and clinical studies have shown that exercise improves cognitive function, learning and memory.

– More encounters with the outdoors, which can help alleviate symptoms of stress, depression, Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Across North Texas, agents with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty are assisting buyers looking for neighborhoods that blend great living and health-promoting green spaces.

In Highland Park, 20 percent of the town’s 2.2 square miles consists of parks and playing fields. In University Park, 20 parks and practice fields encourage kids and adults to get out and play. The Katy Trail stretches 3.5 miles and connects neighborhoods from the American Airlines Center to Mockingbird Station.
