There are so many parks in cities that people don’t know about – and that’s our number one goal – connecting people to places outdoors in the city – green spaces and city parks. We hope you find value in this website and find parks in your area that suit your interest.
Urbnparks was created at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. In times of social distancing and isolation, I, like many people, struggled with mental and physical health. During this time, I realized that my health should be prioritized now more than ever. In times of isolation, I needed to do wellness checks for my mental and physical health.
With gyms closed, I turned to parks. Running, biking, and walking in the scenic parks of Boston helped me get through it. Along the way, I would see parks with so many great amenities that not enough people knew about. Urbnparks was created for that reason – to make finding parks, sports, activities and events more accessible to people, in effort to encourage them to go outdoors in the city.
Urbnparks is a website that helps users find parks and encourage people to get outdoors. We believe in the following values:
Whether you’re walking, running, playing a sport, or doing an activity, getting out to parks provides many health benefits.
In cities, it can be tough to get some outdoors time. Finding a local park allows you to spend time outdoors.
Staying connected with friends, family and community is important. Spend some time in parks to stay connected and stay active.
No matter what your age, doing activities and playing sports helps. Participate, compete, practice, play – and enjoy!
