Welcome to the North Carolina Recreation and Park Association's 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 a resource designed to help parks and recreation agencies and community members meet these goals.​


NCRPA Wellness Blog

Happy New Year! I'm happy to be writing the first wellness blog of 2020. To start the year off, I thought it would be helpful to share information about health and wellness groups/initiatives from around the state of North Carolina. Oftentimes, these groups can provide your department with great resources to advance health and wellness in your communities.
