What's a "Park Prescription?"

Imagine getting a written prescription to take a walk, bicycle, or kayak in a national park. That's exactly what a "park prescription" is.

For more information please refer to the Park Prescription Program Brochure.

To learn more about connecting with urban parks please visit the InsideNPS web site.
