Healthy parks and natural open spaces are a gift to our city and everyone in it. They provide places where people can connect with nature, see wildlife, and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They also keep the air and waterways clean, buffer noise, provide habitat for local wildlife, and absorb carbon to fight against climate change. These valuable places can’t take care of themselves in an urban environment, and they need our help to make sure we have a healthy and GREEN Tukwila-today, tomorrow, and into the future.
