Planning for Parks and Playgrounds
The Nashua Regional Planning Commission was awarded a grant from the HNHfoundation to develop a suite of tools to help communities plan for parks and playgrounds. As part of this effort, NRPC created and launched a story map, guidebook, and infographic. The story map is comprised of a general map of the region with pictures and descriptions of all recreation areas, and is also compatible with mobile devices. The guidebook is an in depth analysis of locations, materials, equipment, maintenance and case studies of successful playgrounds, and the infographic evaluates access to parks and playgrounds in the region.
