Healthy Parks Initiative

KU's Dotte Agency, HCW, and the Community Health Council of Wyandotte County have teamed up to facilitate a Healthy Parks Initiative. Our goal is to encourage people to be more physically active in the parks. We will support a variety of park improvements, including physical changes (e.g. signs, bike racks) as well as community involvement efforts (events, programs, and activities). We are working with the Neighborhood Business Revitalization organizations and other community stakeholders around five WyCo parks:

  • Bethany
  • Fisher
  • Huron
  • Jersey Creek
  • Parkwood

The park communities are taking the lead on determining what their parks and their community members need and want. We will provide assistance and some funding to do improvement projects over the next few years.
