NRPA Pillar of Social Equity
Social Equity Pillar – Ensuring all people have access to the benefits of local parks and recreation.
Public parks and recreation ensure that all people – regardless of race, age, income level or ability – have access to programs, facilities, places and spaces that make their lives and communities great. Parks and recreation truly build communities for all.
National Recreation and Parks Association’s (NRPA) areas of focus include ensuring all people have safe access to quality park and recreation facilities and programming, investing in park improvement projects for communities that need it most, and supporting programs and policies that protect our most vulnerable communities from environmental and health hazards.
