Eighty-two percent of U.S. adults find virtual health resources valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic. Top virtual health resources include:

  • Physical activity classes
  • Health and safety courses such as First Aid/CPR
  • Health literacy classes such as cooking
  • Academic classes such as STEM, reading, writing and digital learning

Park and recreation professionals nationwide moved swiftly to provide modified programming to best serve their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. NRPA is helping park and recreation professionals stay informed as they respond to and recover from the outbreak by sharing resources at NRPA's coronavirus webpage.

Each month, through a poll of 1,000 U.S. residents 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.
