Campus Park Rx
Let us help you find your new BFF greenspace <3
In 2017, the PERL (formerly PRL) Park Rx program was recognized as an innovative best practice in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education's Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) report.
Campus Park Rx (Est. 2015) is a project of the Parks & Ecotherapy Research Lab (PERL) @ William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Campus Park Rx enhances health and well-being on the W&M campus by helping students find and enjoy local greenspace. Abundant scientific research demonstrates that access to and use of parks and other greenspace can play a significant role in the treatment and prevention of anxiety, depression, obesity, and attention disorders.
