Ontario Parks invites you to celebrate the many health benefits of spending time in nature on July 15, 2016. All operating provincial parks in Ontario will waive day-use fees and host special events and activities that encourage people to visit parks and be active. The celebration takes place on the eve of Canada’s Parks Day to create a full weekend focused on the important role parks and nature play in keeping Ontarians and Canadians happier and healthier. For more information on the celebration visit While spending time with nature surely does ignite our imaginations, it actually helps us live happier, healthier, longer lives. In fact, scientists have now demonstrated in more than 200 studies worldwide that nature is the “cure” for what ails us, be it stress, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorders, high blood pressure, recovering from surgery and even difficult birthing! Yes, birthing! A 2010 US study found pregnant women living in areas with more trees had better birthoutcomes.
