3 in 4 U.S. adults say it’s important for people to have access to outdoor amenities during fall and winter to continue or create new family traditions.  

Local park and recreation professionals and their agencies provide a variety of amenities where families can gather, including: 

  • Parks
  • Picnic areas
  • Campgrounds
  • Pavilions

Parents (86%), Gen Xers (85%) and millennials (83%) are most likely to say access to outdoor amenities during the cooler season is important.

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.
