Park Prescription Day April 23, 2017


Celebrate Park Prescription Day across the Bay Area!

Park Prescription Day is celebrated across the United States to promote the growing movement of prescribing parks and nature to patients to improve human health. Additionally, Park Prescription Day encourages everyone to start seeing visits to parks and public lands as very important parts of their health. We encourage everyone to connect with parks daily for improved physical, mental, and spiritual health. This is a national event hosted by the National Park Service, in conjunction with National Park Week, which takes place from April 15-23. There are 35 events happening across the country, more than 10 events hosted in the Bay Area, and the signature event of this national celebration will be taking place on Crissy Field in San Francisco. Find a Bay Area celebration near you and we'll see you in the parks on April 23!
