Park quality affects the value of child's play UAB students compared public play spaces in two cities and demonstrated that wealth of a community affects the value of children's play, for better or worse.

The research, by students in UAB's Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program, was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

The authors said the research, part of their final research project, provided them a window into the challenges of providing suitable play environments for children in low-income neighborhoods.
