Access to parks is key for NRPA.
NRPA works to ensure everyone
has access to the multiple benefits

of parks, and defines access not
only as the physical features that
make it accessible, easy to get to
and beautiful, but also defines access as belonging - creating a
space that feels safe, culturally relevant and welcoming to everyone.

people in Chattanooga currently
within ready access to quality local
parks and recreation.
This area is prime for more park
and green space development. In
