10-Minute Walk: Improving Access To Parks & Green Space!

Everyone Deserves A Safe And Inclusive Park.

Parks and recreation are vital to our health and well-being and create stronger communities that can protect and better recover from environmental, social and economic challenges.

Every day local park and recreation professionals and champions are working on innovative, long-term solutions to ensure that our communities have fair and just access to great parks and greenspace, recreation facilities and programs. 

They are helping to close critical gaps in quantity of parks, proximity of parks and connection to parks all while ensuring that these places are safe, inclusive, culturally relevant and welcoming for everyone.

About 10-Minute Walk

10-minute walk is an initiative made possible by NRPA, ULI and the Trust for Public Land to improve access to parks & green spaces, while transforming communities, and getting people to the places where they live some of their best moments. 

The goal of this initiative is to inspire and enable action to create a world in which 100% of people in U.S. cities—LARGE AND SMALL—have safe access to a quality park or green space within a 10-minute walk of home by 2050; this is their promise to all communities.
