City parks and wilderness environments benefit the health and well-being of the citizens who live nearby and remain a fundamental resource for strengthening American cities. The U.S. Centre for Disease Control (CDC) research shows an exciting and positive correlation between access to community areas and likelihood of someone opting to exercise. Having open recreation space in the vicinity of where people live boosts physical activity, fellowship and fun. Parks often become the unique hub of a city and are an investment in the growth of the neighborhood. Knowing the importance of public space for leisure and enjoyment of nature, Marcus Hiles has helped the transformation of multiple Texas cities with his generous gift. Inspired to create amazing places to live, these community parks are an essential part of his vision. His standard for eco-friendly business extends through his company that annually plants thousands of trees.
