The Park Prescription Program Toolkit is an interactive, step-by-step guide for agencies interested in starting their own Park Prescription program.
Park Prescription programs (also called ParkRx in some areas) involve health or social service providers encouraging people to spend time in nature to improve their health and well-being. They can be as diverse as the communities for which they are designed and often include collaboration between park and public land agencies, healthcare providers, and community partners.
This toolkit was created by the Institute at the Golden Gate using the lessons learned from the Healthy Parks Healthy People: Bay Area Collaborative, in partnership with National ParkRx leaders, and with support from Kaiser Permanente.
You'll find sample meeting agendas, worksheets, training videos, reports with case examples, and much more!
