TOGETHER WE MAKE PARK, RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE PROJECTS HAPPEN
Nantucket is a unique “Faraway Island” located 30 miles out to sea. The highest elevation is 30 feet. The National Park Service has sited Nantucket as a designated Historic Landmark. Over 60% of the island is protected conservation land and boasts public access to all its beaches.
Nantucket has a diverse Community which consists of a year round population, summer residents, and visitors. Nantucket is proud of it’s colorful history and people. Our year round population is approximately 15,000 which increases to over 50,000 during the summer months.
Parks are a vital component to our community. Parks improve the quality of life by promoting physical and mental health. Well maintained parks have a positive impact on economic development and increases property values. Parks protect our natural resources. Nantucket Parks are a place where all of our diverse community is welcome.
Recreation is essential to improving the health of our community. Recreation lowers stress, depression, blood pressure and controls weight. Team sports build self esteem and promote sensitivity to cultural differences. Nantucket recreation programs creates a stronger more connected community.
HOW TO HELP
Nantucket CPR is an independent, citizen led, nonprofit enterprise to mobilize people, and generate resources to protect and enhance Nantucket’s parks and open spaces. In a nutshell, we will make park and open space projects happen by bringing together neighbors, existing associations, park users, town resources, private funders and volunteers. We believe that vibrant, well-kept parks and open spaces are essential to support the community’s economic competitiveness, environmental and physical health, and cultural well-being. Our goal is to to unite the community to support local neighborhoods with small and large projects to enrich our community. Nantucket CPR is not a new model but one that has proven successful throughout the country operating as Friends of the Park, Park Conservancies and various others.
