Park Prescriptions for Better Health!


Park Perscriptions

I am so excited about this concept: Park Prescriptions as a best practice in preventive health. There are several groups pushing to create a national agenda for implementing park prescriptions more widely by further understanding and defining “park prescriptions,” identifying successful models from across the country, and developing standardized measurement and data collection methods that define effectiveness of these programs.

The National Recreation and Park Association is is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Institute at the Golden Gate in California to further this work.

HERE is a sampling of success stories where parks were prescribed for better health.
