Imagine you were never more than a 10-minute walk from a great place to get outside.

Imagine a great park within a 10-minute walk of every home, in every neighborhood, in every city across America.

The research is clear: parks boost well-being for the entire neighborhood. And great parks foster community, where everyone is welcome. We invite you to join us for a day of celebrating the parks we have - and advocating for the parks we need.

Pledge to walk to a park on October 10.
