NRPA serves as the voice of all park and recreation agencies, representing over 105,000 diverse park communities in rural, suburban neighborhoods and urban centers across America.
Parks build community. Whether feeding children, providing social, health, cultural and sport programs, parks serve as a vital contributor to a community’s fiscal, social and physical well being. Overseeing the largest assemblage of public lands nationally, our parks touch the lives of more than 300 million people each year.
Through generous support from our partners and donors, NRPA ensures that all Americans benefit from open space, social services, and deeper community unity. NRPA focuses our efforts in three areas:
Our strategy is to work nationally, community by community, to support and augment programs and initiatives that create lasting impact. Leveraging our reach and empowering park and recreation professionals and the public, NRPA makes a difference every day.
