Parks Build Community is a national initiative demonstrating the transformative value of parks on the health and vitality of communities across America. The vision to build and revitalize parks as thriving gathering places for youth, families and adults is one shared by NRPA, its industry and non-profit partners, and the thousands of park and recreation professionals who develop and maintain these treasured public places.
To date, Parks Build Community projects have been completed in Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Los Angeles, CA, Houston, TX, and now Charlotte, NC.
