Access to urban green space in Mexico City is linked to the socioeconomic status of the neighborhood
Research supports the idea that urban green space (UGS) can positively impact the mental health and resilience of people living in cities. This proved to be particularly relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, proximity to UGS is not equal. Lower income communities generally have less access to UGS than more advantaged communities. Closures and movement restrictions during COVID made accessing UGS even more difficult. This study examined the equity of access to UGS in Mexico City, a COVID hotspot with wealth disparities and environmental issues.
