ParksRX - International

As the health and nature movement grows, the definition of Park Prescriptions continues to evolve. On ParkRx.org they focus on programs or interventions that…

  • Include a health or social service provider
  • who encourages their patients/clients to spend time in nature
  • with the goal of improving their health and well-being.

Park Prescription programs can be as diverse as the communities for which they are designed and they often include collaboration between park and public land agencies, healthcare providers, and community partners. As a result, identifying universal criteria for what constitutes a “Park Prescription” is challenging. ParksRX have developed the criteria that is used on parkrx.org with the input of many stakeholders, recognizing that others may use the term differently.
