Making the Case to Elected Officials: Parks and Health

In an era when city and county budgets are mostly flat or shrinking, demands on our parks and recreation systems continue to grow. That means parks and recreation leaders need to go beyond demonstrating the obvious community benefits of great parks, but provide evidence-based reasons for public officials to invest in parks. Making the Case: Parks and Health is an easy-to-use resource to help park and recreation leaders make the objective case to elected officials that parks are a critical part of the community’s public health infrastructure. The resource includes data-rich fact sheets, presentations, infographics and other resources that will help you get support for your agency. Join this webinar to learn from experts and leaders on how to make the case that an investment in parks is an investment in health.
