Health and Wellness for ALL People of ALL Abilities
Opportunities for active recreation are critical to individual and community health and wellness. We advocate for legislation that supports the growing role of public parks and recreation in improving individual and community health through the prevention of chronic disease, the rehabilitation of wounded service members, and the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in all activities.
Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability
Parks and outdoor recreation lands are the essential green infrastructure of our communities and our nation. Parks and public recreation lands are carbon reducing landscapes that help clean our air and water, recharge aquifers, and reduce stormwater runoff. Through energy, climate change, and other legislative measures, we advocate for dedicated resources that will sustain, protect, restore, and expand these environmental assets.
Children and Nature
The National Recreation and Parks Association regards improving children’s access to nature as a national policy priority. NRPA believes public parks and recreation are vital to the national effort to engage children in enjoying the outdoors, to provide safe, healthy ways to explore nature, and to enhance environmental education.
Parks and recreation agencies deliver essential public services and provide recreation opportunities for every community in America. NRPA advocates for federal investments that provide funding for the acquisition, development, and rehabilitation of parks and public lands as well as recreational infrastructure and resources.
