Park Prescriptions are programs designed in collaboration with healthcare providers and community partners that utilize parks, trails, and open space for the purpose of improving individual and community health. NRPA co-leads the National ParkRx Initiative with the Institute at the Golden Gate and the National Park Service to advance the use of parks and public lands to improve health and wellness among individuals and communities. Visit the National ParkRx Initiative website to learn more about the Initiative and how you can connect with other practitioners.
