Two-thirds of U.S. adults look to social media to find out about local events. Many also learn about local events through word of mouth (59%). Park and recreation agencies host myriad events year-round intended to engage the local community.

Facebook is the top social media platform to learn about local events (53%), followed by Instagram (27%).

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.
