Improve Your Health- Get a Park Rx

Ever notice how great you can feel after spending some time in the great outdoors? Taking a long walk through a place like the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, or even a historic cemetery like the Historic Topeka Cemetery. Getting some fresh air can help you in so many ways. In 2011, the National Park established the Health Parks Healthy People US program. The goal of this program is to help designate our National Parks as an emerging, powerful health prevention strategy. Getting out in the parks, national, state, and local parks, can actually help your health! Use a park to help increase your mental, physical, and spiritual health, and social well-being and sustainability of the planet!  How do you use parks within our Heritage Area to increase your health?
