More than half of Americans completely support or strongly support the revitalization of these spaces.

  • Overall - 59%

Each month, through a poll of Americans that is focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research.
