In this document, The Institute at the Golden Gate has gathered profiles of programs around the US that demonstrate successes and knowledge gained toward a Park Prescriptions model.

Park Prescriptions is a movement to create a healthier population by strengthening the connection between the healthcare system and public lands across the country. The goal is to increase the prescription of outdoor physical activity to prevent (or treat) health problems resulting from inactivity and poor diet.

Park Prescriptions will allow visitors to public lands to increase their time spent enjoying physical activity and will also provide physicians and other healthcare providers with a new set of tools to inspire patients to improve their health. Park Prescriptions programs also benefi t public lands by promoting park stewardship and increasing potential funding sources.
