Everyone deserves a quality park within a 10-minute walk of home. But research shows one in three people in the United States – more than 100 million people – don’t have a park within a 10-minute walk of home.
That’s why the National Recreation and Park Association in partnership with The Trust for Public Land and the Urban Land Institute, are leading a nationwide movement to ensure there’s a great park within a 10-Minute Walk of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across the country.
As part of the 10-Minute Walk campaign, we are thrilled to announce that the City of Lynnwood was selected to receive $40,000 in grant funding from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). The grant funding will be used to support Lynnwood's planning and policy efforts that help increase access to high-quality parks, close-to-home parks and public green space.
Mayor Smith is a proud participant of the 10-Minute Walk campaign, led by NRPA, The Trust for Public Land (TPL) and the Urban Land Institute (ULI).
