Thankfully, our country has set aside thousands and thousands of acres of land for our enjoyment. I was wondering how much it costs. To my surprise, every dollar that is spent on parks generates ten times that in economic growth for the community. I have always worried about precious natural land being consumed, but what better way to preserve it for all of us to enjoy.
