The article is devoted to the study of physiological effects of staying in the park areas in people of different ages. The study involved 20 students aged 18-20 years; 20 schoolchildren aged 14-15 years; 11 elderly people aged 69-76 years. We recorded tidal volume and respiratory rate, took blood pressure and counted heart rate, calculated hemodynamic parameters. We analyzed the parameters of attention, determined the capacity of short-term auditory and visual memory. All studied parameters were recorded before and after a walk in the park. While people spend time in the open air in recreation areas, the positive dynamics in cardiorespiratory system is observed: a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, but maximal pulmonary ventilation increases. Also, we noticed that the level of state anxiety has reduced. We have discovered that the influence of recreation area environment on the functional state of test subjects depends on their age The magnitude of the changes depends on the deviation of the initial parameters from the normal values. The most positive values are observed in people with maximum deviation from the norm. The practical significance of the study is to expand the range of drug-free methods to enhance functions of cardiovascular, respiratory systems and the brain in elderly people with the help of sensory environment of recreation areas.
