Park Rx Programs

Park Rx Logo with Highmark FINAL

Join us on the road to a healthier YOU this year by spending some quality time in nature with our Park Rx series of programs.

The goal of these Park Rx programs is to benefit all ages in the community from children to seniors, create diverse activities to appeal to a wide range of health and wellness interests, strive to improve cognitive, emotional, social, and educational development, and create positive experiences in nature which can lead to a lifelong commitment for caring and conserving our natural resources.

With the support of Highmark Blue Shield, our sponsor, we’re excited to bring some amazing instructors and offerings to our parks and surrounding area. So, join the fun and register for some programs today!
