Community & Age Friendly Parks

Eastern Idaho Public Health partners with selected communities to find opportunities for improvement in their built environments, creating paces in parks that are accessible to all ages.  The results of this work will ensure that community members have safe, accessible, and healthy options to be active every day.

Public parks are important places for building a sense of community and social belonging.  They are spaces that belong to everyone, regardless of age.  However, the way parks are designed, maintained, and programmed doesn’t always reflect the purpose and promise of such public spaces.  Parks should benefit people of all ages.  Eastern Idaho Public Health is interested in partnering with your community and local parks to find opportunities for improvement.
