objectives of The Healthy Parks Plan
The Healthy Parks Plan will improve community health by expanding access to the benefits of parks—including increased opportunities for physical activity. The plan will also advance equity in the region by directly engaging communities with the greatest need.
This project will:
Engage local community members in identifying park priorities and obstacles to using parks for physical activity
Identify the park investments that will do the most to improve community health and equity
Empower community groups to be active stewards of local parks and encourage health-focused park programming
Raise awareness about the connections between park access, equity, and community health
