A big trick to liveable cities – are some safe, clean and good public spaces. I’m not talking about big gardens, large attractions or national parks, not here. Just a few scattered, almost incidental green spaces… where people can sit, have lunch, have a chat, look at some trees or birds, catch some rays, and just be connected to nature and her objective realities again. It’s good for the soul to be grounded – to connect to natural reality, the biosphere, the ecology. We have these little green oases everywhere – and to me it’s a sign of a healthy society and healthy community. As updates are being made to the buildings around it (maintenance is another key to making cities liveable) – this little park is really just a lawn, two chairs, a light and a bush or two. Yet it adds something the greatest historical or technological improvements can’t. Sometimes, the public needs some space… like fish need water.
