Park and recreation professionals get children playing sports excited to play the game by cheering through a chainlink fence.Parks and recreation has the power and potential to tackle the impacts of climate change, reverse childhood obesity, combat loneliness and isolation, and create stronger and more equitable communities where all experience the benefits of parks and recreation. Park and recreation professionals provide places to heal, programs to nourish and opportunities to mentor. This year’s annual report reinforces what we hold with the deepest conviction — parks and recreation can help solve our biggest problems. NRPA stands ready, with the support of our partners and funders, to rise up to the challenge.
