Step Up to Health

The Little Rock Parks and Recreation Master Plan created in 2001 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.
