Promoting Physical Activity In Parks and Communities
Close-to-home recreation on neighborhood trails and greenways, and in National Parks, is vital for improving America's public health.
The National Park Service is ideally positioned to respond to this urgent need to increase Americans' level of physical activity.
Through its Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program, the National Park Service has launched a nationwide initiative to encourage healthful outdoor physical activity in National Parks and local communities to demonstrate practical approaches for public land managers and community leaders who want to encourage active lifestyles. RTCA has partnered with the YMCA of the USA and others to promote healthy communities.
