Make the Commitment

Make the commitment to increase park access in your city.

Now more than ever, people need parks. At no other time in U.S. history have so many people developed or renewed a connection with outdoor spaces. Parks are not just another form of infrastructure or a “nice to-have.” They’re critical to our wellbeing and the safety and health of our communities.
