Why are parks and recreation programs important?

Recreation used to be viewed as something pleasant which we did when we had time. This perception has undergone significant change in recent years. Individuals and communities have realized—and research continues to demonstrate—the broad reaching benefits associated with recreation and active living. The 1997 Benefits Catalogue, produced by the REThink Group for Health Canada, the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association and Parks and Recreation Ontario, identifies eight major benefits areas. These are:

  • Recreation and active living are essential to personal health
  • Recreation is a key to balanced human development
  • Recreation and parks are essential to quality of life
  • Recreation reduces self-destructive and anti-social behaviour
  • Recreation and parks build strong families and healthy communities
  • Recreation reduces health care, social service and police/justice costs
  • Recreation and parks are significant economic generators
  • Parks, open space and natural areas are essential to ecological survival
