What is Seattle Parks And Recreation's Healthy Parks, Healthy You Initiative?

The Healthy Parks Healthy You Initiative (HPHY) is designed to promote physical activity and wellness programs that serve our diverse community. Seattle Parks and Recreation partners with Public Health-Seattle & King County to plan and implement different components of the initiative with the National Recreation and Parks Association’s “Step in to Action: Guidelines to Community Health and Livability” program.

Seattle Parks and Recreation established The Healthy Parks Healthy You Committee in 2008 with the goal of bringing the HPHY Initiative to life. The Committee is responsible for developing, implementing and evaluating specific “Action Items” that support healthy programs and lifestyles. HPHY members serve as ambassadors for the health initiative to the public and to Parks employees.

Being obese puts you at a higher risk for health problems such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and more.  Thirty minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week, combined with a healthier diet, can be enough to make a difference. Seattle Parks and Recreation offers citizens endless opportunities to achieve those 30 minutes of moderate exercise at our trails, playgrounds, gyms, pools, fitness classes, athletic fields, beaches, and more. For more information on our health and fitness opportunities check out our website http://seattle.gov/parks/.
