The City of Camden was selected among 11 other cities to receive funding from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) as part of the 10-Minute Walk Campaign.
Everyone deserves a quality park within a 10-minute walk from home. One in 3 Americans currently do not have access to a park within 10-minutes (or half-mile) from their homes. As part of the NRPA, along with The Trust for Public Land (TPL) and the Urban Land Institute (ULI), 12 cities nationwide were selected to receive grant funding totaling $480,000. The grant funding will be used to support city planning efforts that help increase access to high-quality parks within a 10-minute walk.
