What is Green Exercise?

Green Exercise refers to physical activity or exercise, such as cycling, jogging, horse-riding or walking that occurs in the presence of nature. Green space can include countryside or an urban park (see Pretty, Peacock, Sellens, & Griffin, 2005; Pretty, Peacock, Hine, Sellens, South, & Griffin, 2007; Barton & Pretty, 2010).
