Get Healthy Outside in Philadelphia

NaturePHL is a cross-sector program helping Philadelphia children and families achieve better health through activity in local parks, trails, and green spaces.

The collaborative program brings together physicians, educators, public health advocates, park and recreation agencies, and other organizations to offer outdoor activity /nature prescriptions for Philadelphia families.

According to our peers at Parks Rx America, there are hundreds of “nature prescribers” across the country. Over the past ten years, this movement has seen an explosion of research and interest. Health care providers across the country are using nature and park prescriptions as form of preventative medicine. Nature PHL is a proud member of this movement.
