Health By Design
Parks and trails offer public spaces for physical activity, recreation and fun, and connections to other vital destinations within an active transportation system. The evidence is clear: they have a positive impact on all aspects of health and community economic development. Through thoughtful and intentional collaboration, parks and public health professionals can achieve more equitable, safe, and accessible greenspaces.
Indy Greenways Partnership
This initiative provides programming on Indy Greenways. It is based upon the premise that providing broad opportunities for residents to engage with the greenways helps to build lifelong advocates, support, and demand for continued investment in the greenway system.
