by Staff

NRPA recently announced their new partnership with Semsodyne in an effort to reinvigorate local parks and outdoor spaces across the country.

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) recently announced their new partnership with Semsodyne to revitalize parks and outdoor spaces across the country.

Three parks will initially receive improvements including Lynnbrook Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Wissahickon Valley Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Walnut Creek Wetland Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

"Sensodyne is proud to be partnering with NRPA to improve parks in need across the country," enthused Jason Milligan, Vice President, US Oral Health GSK Consumer Healthcare, "We're excited to continue to create real, positive impact on the environment, with the help of NRPA, and look forward to seeing these parks thrive."

Lynnbrook Park will be transformed into a gathering space that will feature native plantings, a restored stream, and new play equipment.

Wissahickon Valley Park will receive upgrades after the immense loss of a thousand acres of trees which included a tree canopy.

Meanwhile, Walnut Creek Wetland Park, which was originally a dumping ground that was subjected to flooding, was converted into a park and nature preserve in 2009 and will now receive updates and restoration to support a new food forest.

"These enhancements ensure all people benefit from parks and open spaces that are not only resilient and regenerative, but support individual and community health and well-being," Kellie May, NRPA Vice President of Programs and Partnerships, explained, "NRPA is grateful for Sensodyne's support to nourish these communities."
