Nearly all (93%) U.S. adults are likely to seek out a new skill or hobby. Top activities of interest include:

  • Cooking
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Fitness and Health

Park and recreation professionals and their agencies provide countless programs — from gardening and cooking classes to esports tournaments, fitness programs, art lessons and more — that are welcoming and accessible to all.

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.
