A new piece will look into our local green spaces and places to enjoy the outdoors...

America's municipal parks offer many benefits to the public. They help people relax, exercise and spend time together. Green spaces also allow city residents to experience nature without traveling long distances. An upcoming segment of "Behind the Scenes" will look at efforts to expand municipal park systems across the country.

More than 19 out of 20 people in New York, San Francisco and Boston can easily walk to local parks. They live within a half-mile of the nearest public green space. Chicagoans benefit from over 550 municipal park locations. Nonetheless, some Americans still lack sufficient access to such facilities.

The producers of "Behind the Scenes" plan to highlight current municipal projects in an informative and insightful manner. Host James Earl Jones will introduce a segment that will educate viewers about noteworthy new parks under construction in various American cities. They can expect to learn about the locations, amenities and sizes of these attractive green spaces.

This episode of the popular informational television program will also showcase certain elements of the process involved in establishing new park facilities. Cities must obtain the necessary land, remove any unwanted structures and perform landscaping tasks. They also need to install equipment ranging from basketball hoops to water fountains.

"Behind the Scenes" segments are exclusively produced for public TV stations across America. They feature highly accurate information, engaging subjects and top-notch video recording. The program is independently produced and distributed; it isn't created or supplied by American Public Television or the Public Broadcasting Service.
