Living in a city offers more social opportunities than what life in small towns and rural areas can offer.
Over and above greater work and income opportunities, life in a city brings with it features and spaces than can actively improve the lives of its citizens.
Features and spaces to improve lives include:
Better access to sports and recreational facilities.
Better access to cultural entertainment, museums and art exhibitions.
Better access to parks and botanical gardens.
Exposure to historical and modern architecture.
Better access to health services and social welfare services.
More, and better, educational facilities.
Greater mobility to enjoy seeing and doing more things within the city.
