National Recreation and Park Association

You're a park professional. An urban planner. A concerned citizen. Why is NRPA important to you? Because parks and recreation is important to you. For more than 40 years, NRPA has been the voice advocating the significance of making parks, open space, and recreational opportunities available to all Americans. That makes NRPA your organization.

In towns all across America, millions of acres of open space that could be transformed into hiking and biking trails, community parks, and local recreation centers is being bulldozed and paved over. Won't you join NRPA in helping to save these valuable community resources?
