EveryOne deserves

A Park Within A

of Home

Studies show that 

parks are essential

to the physical, social, environmental, and economic health of a community.

One In Three Americans

don't have a park within a 10-minute walk (or half-mile) of home.

That’s why The Trust for Public Land, in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association and the Urban Land Institute, is leading a nationwide movement to ensure there’s a great park within a 10 Minute Walk of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across America.

The 10-Minute Walk campaign not only calls on Mayors to demonstrate their commitment to parks but encourages them to adopt long-term, system-wide strategies to improve equitable access to quality parks. We encourage mayors that have signed on to the campaign to make a specific and measurable commitment outlining your unique approach to increasing equitable park access and quality.
