Nominate our city to receive a $20k grant during earth month

Meet Me at the Park

City with the most nominations gets a grant for a local park through ‘Meet Me at the Park’ Earth Month campaign


For the fourth year in a row, the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company — including Disney|ABC Television Group and ESPN — to help fund local park improvement projects across the country through the national “Meet Me at the Park” Earth Month campaign. The city that receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.

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 to April 30, Springdale residents will have the opportunity to nominate our city to receive $20,000 in grant funding to make improvements at a local park.

By visiting NRPA.org/Disney, park supporters can nominate our city. At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive the grant funding. Everyone who nominates a city will be entered into a drawing for a GoPro Prize Pack.

This Earth Month, Springdale can show what parks mean to our community by nominating our great city. Encourage your friends to nominate our city by taking a selfie in your favorite park and using the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark, #Parkies and #CelebrateEarth.

For more information and to nominate your city, visit www.NRPA.org/DisneyMeetMeAtThePark.
