About the Study
We are glad to introduce you to an exciting new research partnership between the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB). This partnership will implement a research study investigating the outdoor leisure time activity needs of different family types and the impact of neighborhood park design on family health and well-being.
- Explore recreational needs of children and adults in different family groups
- Explore the role of public parks in meeting the increasingly diversified needs of families
- Quantify the impact of park improvements and active information sharing on activity and well-being
