Hot Springs National Park to host National Park Rx Day on Arlington Lawn April 24

Hot Springs National Park will present activities on Sunday, April 24 at 1:00 p.m. in conjunction with National Park Rx Day, a day celebrated across the United States to promote the growing movement of prescribing parks and nature to patients to improve human health.


National Park Rx Day encourages everyone to start seeing visits to parks and public lands as very important parts of their health.
The program will provide free games, relay races, hula hoops, Indian clubs, sack races and more that also promote Hot Springs National Park’s Healthy Parks, Healthy People initiative. Arlington Lawn will be this year’s site of the first National Park Rx Day at Hot Springs National Park.

National Park Rx Day was created to amplify the visibility and viability of the nation-wide Park Rx movement in parks and communities across the nation; to celebrate existing Park Rx programs and practitioners across the country; to serve as a catalyst to bring together local health providers, park agencies, community leaders, and nonprofits to begin dialogue and momentum to develop their own Park Rx programs for improvement of their communities; and to increase the relevance of parks for all people; how people can connect with parks daily for their improved physical, mental, and spiritual health and create a new generation of park stewards.

“Nature is good for us, it is a great antidote to a variety of ailments, including obesity, heart disease, and depression,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “A growing number of public health officials now prescribe time in parks for the well-being of their patients. It is becoming a standard medical practice to tell patients to take a hike.”
