These trails will connect to form a series of walking trails open to the public. Green spaces preserve the natural trees, grass and vegetation of an area. These areas will give Clayton County residents the opportunity to visit urban areas that are now set apart for recreational and natural enjoyment of the outdoors. The environmental benefits that green spaces provide include filtering pollutants from the air, shade that lowers temperatures, reduced soil erosion and natural resource conservation. The construction of walking trails gives Clayton County residents access to these green spaces which improve the quality of life in communities. These green spaces and trails improve the economy through tourism and civic improvement and preserve and restore open space. These spaces provide opportunities for citizens to engage in physical activity to improve their overall fitness and mental health.
