Celebrate the Second Annual Park Rx Day


The Second Annual Park Prescriptions (Park Rx) Day will be held on April 23, 2017!

What is Park Rx Day?

Park Rx Day is a day for people everywhere to give themselves the gift of good health, with a walk in the park, and to celebrate the growing Park Rx movement that has doctors prescribing time in parks to their patients to improve their health. Park Rx Day is being organized by a consortium of partners across the country with leadership from the National Recreation and Parks Association, the National Park Service, and the Institute at the Golden Gate.

Interested in joining the movement? Host your own Park Rx Day celebration!

There are already 38 events in parks and communities registered all across the country. The National Park Service and the Surgeon General look forward to sharing the message with the American Public to jump start their way to fitness by walking in a park – it’s not only fun, it’s good for you!
