There are a lot of advantages by having a good facilities recreational park in neighborhood. These advantages included helping economic growth, enhancing family recreation opportunities, helping residents stay healthy, preserving natural areas, and making the city a better place to live.
In some places, economic growth is being fostered by the inmigration of retirees.
The retirees who perceive recreation or parks to have been important in their selection of a community appear to have different values and feel more attached to their new community than do those who do not perceive these services to have been important. The quality of recreation and park facilities in communities may be a significant factor which
pulls retirees to new communities. The retirees who engage in social and cultural activities and develop ties to their new communities are more likely to be satisfied with their community, their quality of life, and tend to stay in that community. Available recreation opportunities, including parks, are likely to be important to permanent and temporary (seasonal) retiree relocaters because of their significant contribution to quality-of-life. Retiree migrants tend to be active participating in vigorous activities (hiking,
jogging, skiing, tennis, biking, swimming) on a regular basis. Subsequently, the quality of the recreation and park facilities may play a substantial role in retaining relocaters. The opportunity to participate in recreational, social and cultural opportunities in a community may be critical to the community’s economic development efforts. If facilities are satisfactory, then relocaters are likely to stay in the community, and continue to contribute to the local economy. This information suggests that recreation professionals need to better understand the role recreation and park facilities have in retiree relocation.

Kinesthetics is the perception of movement through nerves in the muscles, tendons and joints. This process is enhanced with continued physical activity at an early age.
