Here at The Urban Interface, we pride ourselves on bringing nature to urban, well-developed areas. Some of the largest cities in Texas have done the same by introducing parks right in the middle of the cities biggest infrastructures. Cities all over America are starting to follow this trend, making parks much more accessible for people living in more urban areas to interact with nature. These parks consist of jungle gyms for kids, restaurants, concert stages, sporting courts, and incredible views. Even more than just being a place for people to reconnect with each other, the parks have introduced new homes for local plants and wildlife. This list will explain the importance of the parks to not only the people living in these cities, but the overall impact of steering our cities away from concrete jungles.
