Welcome to NCRPA's recreation and parks wellness initiative! This initiative's mission is to empower parks and recreation agencies in North Carolina to create healthy communities through the development of programs, policies, and infrastructure that support healthy eating and physical activity. This toolkit is the first of many resources designed to help parks and recreation agencies and community members meet these goals.

The ideas in this document are not meant to be exhaustive; instead, NCRPA selected a few projects to provide a starting point for agencies interested in promoting wellness in their community. Below are tips for getting started, as well as specific projects that your agency can try to promote healthy eating and physical activity.

If you are still unsure where to begin and would like assistance, call NCRPA at (919) 832-5868 or email us.

Finally, if your agency has already implemented a great program promoting healthy eating and/or physical activity, share it with us! We will add the best programs to this toolkit.  Need help navigating the NCRPA Wellness Toolkit? Click here to learn more about the Wellness Toolkit and how to use it.
