A Systems Approach to Assessing Parks

What makes a park successful depends heavily on neighborhood context, and assessing a parks system is an important step in making equitable improvements and creating a Complete Parks system. This means making decisions based on data about people’s entire experience with parks—getting to a park, spending time there, safety and maintenance, proximity to quality schools, affordable housing, local businesses, and key services, and more. The Complete Parks approach has immense potential to create an inclusive parks system and simultaneously address an array of planning, public health, and environmental issues. This session highlights the benefits of collaborating with other government agencies and community-based groups to conduct a meaningful parks system assessment. Speakers will present sample indicators and metrics, provide guidance for multidisciplinary groups to collect and analyze the data, and share possible strategies for creating a Complete Parks system.

Building Resilient Youth

Local park and recreation agencies are one of the largest providers of out-of-school time (OST) programming across the country. With new public health threats and concerns emerging each day, including youth exposed to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma, rising rates of depression and substance misuse, what is the role of the OST field in responding to these challenges? How can park and recreation agencies build additional protective factors into their programs that foster positive physical, social and mental health outcomes? Join NRPA, the Afterschool Alliance and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in a workshop to explore how OST providers can better identify risk factors, apply a trauma-informed care lens to their work, and build social and emotional supports into their existing programs that improves health outcomes.
