Which one of us has more support than we could ever need from decision makers and the public? Which one of us has never encountered a challenge when communicating the value of what parks and recreation professionals make happen every day in their communities? Parks and recreation programs remain at a critical crossroads and the timing is perfect for us to educate and make aware members of the public who participate in, fund, and benefit from our services.
Healthy people start in parks by living active lifestyles.
The building of community starts in parks with each playground interaction.
Economic development through events and increases in property values start in parks.
Taking care of our environment for future generations to enjoy starts in parks.
In these and so many other ways, It Starts In Parks.
