Quality of life impacts
Roseville, Calif. – Over the years, many of our readers assert that one of the leading factors for quality of life in Rocklin & Roseville is the exceptional system of parks and open spaces. We agree!
Well designed, beautifully maintained and integrated throughout neighborhoods, our local parks and open spaces are often the envy of many communities throughout the country and those who visit. Providing rest and recreation opportunities for all ages, they are a community treasure, accessible to all.
Sometimes, some of those fantastic locations become very popular, understandably so. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a great time with friends in a beautiful outdoor setting close to home? Popular locations deserve a little more of our attention to the “leave no trace” philosophy. The ability to return to popular locations in which their beauty and tranquility have remained intact is a rewarding travel experience. It is also a hallmark of a well-respected place.
Lose their luster
Places that aren’t respected quickly lose their luster. Additional restrictions and signage begin popping up, video surveillance is added, trash becomes more commonplace, neighbor complaints to police accumulate and the overall joy and benefits quickly dissipate from a previously treasured location. Popularity need not destroy a good thing.
Take Only Pictures, Leave Only Footprints
Being respectful of your surroundings, local neighbors and fellow visitors, goes a long way in keeping the locations you love open and accessible. Respect your parks and open spaces and they will reward you back, year after year after year!
