Step Up to Health
The 2001 Little Rock Parks and Recreation Master Plan describes how
good park and recreation systems help shape urban landscapes, improve
the quality of life, increase property values, and make cities better
places to live, work, and play. A major contributing factor in
achieving these goals is improved community health and well being.
As Part of the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) Step up to Health
movement, the City of Little Rock has been designated as a NRPA Step Up
to Health Community. This designation was acquired through the
participation in a National Step Up to Health. It Starts in Parks summit
event held in early 2007.
A healthy community is a vibrant community. We ask that you join
Little Rock Parks and Recreation in helping to promote healthy
lifestyles and a vibrant environment through the pursuit and attainment
of healthy lifestyles.
