Highlights:

Landscape metrics demonstrate utility in linking greenspace patterns to human health.
Multi-model inference identifies important metrics despite small effect sizes.
Water cover, tree planting diversity are compositional characteristics that promote health.
Large, interspersed greenspace patches are configurational characteristics that promote health.
