National ParkRx Day is an annual celebration of the Park Prescription movement.

On this day, healthcare providers, park agencies, community groups, and other Park Prescription program leaders organize events and activities in parks and green spaces across the country, encouraging participants to improve their health and well-being by embracing the health benefits of nature. Each ParkRx Day, the movement in parks and communities nationwide is amplified and opportunities are created for new programs to connect people to their parks and public lands.

ParkRx Day 2019 is on Sunday, April 28. This year is focused on engaging and thanking healthcare providers for bringing their patients outdoors for better health.
