Park Prescriptions in Greater Washington area, United States

 

The concept of park prescriptions – health professionals prescribing time in nature as a treatment – is something that is gaining momentum.

In the Greater Washington area, United States, a program called DC Park Prescriptions is part of a larger initiative around the country to get people to go outside, to visit a park, to be in nature. Doctors prescribing nature is seen as a positive step forward in tackling lifestyle related health issues such as heart disease, obesity, depression and diabetes.
