receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local
Local parks make Dallas a better
place to live and shape so many of our lives. Parks are essential to our city’s
health and wellbeing. They provide safe places to be active and enjoy nature—and
they help preserve the environment and bring people together. That’s why from
April 1 to April 30 Dallas residents will have the opportunity to nominate our city to receive $20,000 in grant funding to make improvements at a local park.
By visiting NRPA.org/DisneyMeetMeAtThePark park supporters can nominate our city. At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive the grant funding. Everyone who nominates a city will be entered into a drawing for a GoPro Prize Pack.
“At NRPA we believe everyone
deserves a great park. That’s why we’re proud to collaborate with The Walt
Disney Company on this campaign,” said Lori Robertson, NRPA director of
conservation. “Everyone is encouraged to join us in giving back to the places
that shape so much of our lives by participating in this year’s campaign. A nomination
for your favorite park is all it takes.”
This Earth Month, Dallas can show what
parks mean to our community by nominating our great city. Encourage your
friends to nominate our city by taking a selfie in your favorite park and using
the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark, #Parkies and #CelebrateEarth.
