Each and every place this real estate people will be selling land . government is also not cared about parks and play grounds.. even ther are interested in buildings and complexes. there is no way to blame children, if they play in streets parents will stop them playing there reason , vehicles may hit them(fear of accidents).
children transform to spend there time in indoor games and video games. this make them fat and unhealthy.
It's hard to imagine my childhood without the neighborhood park.
I was always under the rosy assumption that every kid grew up knowing the joys of a local playground. But it turns out that only about one in five kids live near parks.
 
Health officials have concluded that this may be one reason why so many American kids are overweight -- there's nowhere close by for them to run around, play and get exercise (whether intentional or unintentional).
Growing up in a small Western New York town, I actually had access to two parks: one within walking distance that boasted a community pool, where I practically lived at in the summer, and one a short bike ride away that was a child's paradise -- a large playground with wooden castles and suspended bridges, swings galore, a track, a football field and even a stage that pals and I commandeered when the town players weren't using it for their productions in the warmer months.
 
Based on a survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The Associated Press reports that "only about one in five homes have parks within a half-mile, and about the same number have a fitness or recreation center within that distance."
The CDC says that of the kids surveyed, only about half said they had easy access to playgrounds, jogging paths or other places to exercise.
Additionally, the survey found that fewer than one in five high school students in the U.S. get at least an hour of physical activity a day.
 
Obviously, neighborhood parks are a luxury; but when, according to the CDC, only 37 states require physical education for all school grades, it seems neighborhood parks and playgrounds could be a great answer to the growing epidemic of obesity in America.
After all, I don't know any kid who doesn't like to climb, jump, swing and run around when given the opportunity.
