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

of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across America.

In cities across the country, mayors are coming together to endorse the 10-minute walk to a park standard for all.
