American's Broad-Based Support for Local Recreation and Park Services

The key takeaways from the Americans’ Broad-Based Support for Local Recreation and Park Services report include: 1) An overwhelming majority of Americans assert that they personally benefit from local parks and that their communities benefit from local parks; 2) Americans are in agreement that NRPA’s Three Pillars—Conservation, Health & Wellness and Social Equity—are chief priorities for local parks; 3) Parks are a great value: 4 in 5 Americans concur that local parks are well worth the tax dollars spent on them. This passion for local parks has gone unabated over the past 25 years, even with dramatic demographic shifts in the United States and the ways technology transformed how we interact with others and entertain ourselves. Support for local parks is widespread, spanning different age groups, income strata, household types and political affiliations.
