Parks Keep Us Healthy

Parks help keep us fit, reduce stress, and improve social connections. But they also play a vital role in supporting our urban environments.  In this episode I talk with Dr. Myron Floyd of NC State University’s Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management department and learn about the ways we benefit when we visit a park.  Then I head west to Boone, NC to visit the Clawson Burnely park to discover how it helps clean the water we all drink.
