Local parks make Springdale a better place to live and shape so many of our lives. Parks are essential to our city’s health and wellbeing. They provide safe places to be active and enjoy nature—and they help preserve the environment and bring people together. That’s why from April 1-30, Springdale residents will have the opportunity to nominate our city to receive $20,000 in grant funding to make improvements to a local park.
This Earth Month, the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company, including Disney Citizenship, Disney/ABC Television Group and ESPN, to revitalize parks across the U.S. The city that receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.
By visiting NRPA.org/BeInspired, park supporters can nominate our city. At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive the grant funding. This is the third year for this campaign, but new this year, everyone who nominates a city will be entered into a drawing for a tablet outfitted for the outdoors.
Springdale residents can show what parks mean to our community by nominating our great city. Encourage your friends to nominate Springdale by taking a selfie in your favorite park and using the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark, #Parkies, and #BeInspired.
For more information and to nominate your city, visit NRPA.org/BeInspired.
