The National Recreation and Park Association is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing park, recreation, and conservation efforts that enhance quality of life for all people.
NRPA is the leading advocacy organization dedicated to the advancement of public parks and recreation opportunities. Founded in 1965 through the merger of 5 national organizations dedicated to the same cause, NRPA has grown over the years - in total membership, in outreach efforts, in building partnerships, and in serving as the voice and defender of parks and recreation.
NRPA is dedicated to educating professionals and the public on the essential nature of parks and recreation. Through learning opportunities, research, and communications initiatives, we strive to generate significant public support for our movement in order to advance the development of best practices and resources that will make parks and recreation indispensable elements of American communities.
We also advocate for increased national funding for parks and recreation through federal grants and initiatives that support healthy lifestyles, economic vitality and environmental stewardship.
We are the hub for connecting advocates, professionals, suppliers and government leaders so that, together, we can achieve common goals and further advance our movement.
NRPA is funded through membership dues, conference and event sales, and charitable contributions. These funds are used to conduct research, education and policy initiatives on behalf of the movement.
NRPA is a non-profit organization organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We are headquartered in Ashburn, Virginia.
