  • Crissy Field Park Prescription Day Highlights

    We had so much fun celebrating with everyone at Crissy Field's Park Prescription Day. On Sunday, we welcomed thousands of park goers to experience the health benefits of being outdoors. Participants of all ages were taking part in group activities, such as Tai-Chi and Zumba. Agencies were at booths encouraging families to be acquainted with the many free community resources around them. We want to thank all of our amazing event partners who helped make it possible for everyone to have fun outdoors! Photos by Curran White, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. 

    San Francisco State University students brought parachutes, agility courses, and games for children to play with. 

    Make your own smoothie without electricity? Point Bonita YMCA showed us how with their ever-popular smoothie bikes. 

    Institute staff were on hand to help participants navigate their way around the activity schedule and 40+ agency tables. 

    Park Prescription Day can't be complete without a park prescription from a white coat! San Francisco Recreation and Parks had their Doctor of Parks prescribing programs to passers by!

    As we found out, nothing gets a crowd going more than seeing a Golden Gate National Recreation Area ranger participating in Zumba!

    Tai-chi groups loved the open space to demonstrate their expertise.
