Exciting news – NPRA has launched an impressive collaboration with The Walt Disney Company, including Disney Citizenship, Disney ABC Television Group and ESPN to expand Parks Build Community and demonstrate the value of community parks on the national level.
A national Public Service Announcement, "Meet Me at the Park," has run on national media outlets.
