Green space can be used as a low cost intervention in the battle against childhood obesity and can play an integral role in improving health outcomes in various inner city communities. This systematic review seeks to determine the advantages to using green space (local parks, public/ community gardens and playing fields) and how it can be incorporated as an additional low cost intervention to treating obesity. A total of ten studies obtained from as CINAHL, Ovid Medline, Google Scholar and PubMed, were reviewed in order to determine the correlation between green space and obesity. Out of the studies reviewed, 80% of them demonstrated a positive correlation between the two. Key areas for future research would include determining if the amount of green space (square footage) and quality of green space (open fields versus parks versus community gardens) are significant factors in relation to improving health outcomes.
