About San Mateo County Park Rx


San Mateo County Park Prescription (Rx) Program is part of a national initiative to promote spending time in nature to improve health and well-being. Time spent in nature benefits your physical health:

  • Reduces blood pressure and headaches
  • Promotes overall health and well-being
  • Promotes faster healing time
  • Lowers Stress

And improves your emotional health:

  • Increases academic performance and productivity
  • Improves mood and behavior
  • Reduces mental fatigue, anger, and frustration

Explore the outdoors anytime. Join your community in one of the many open spaces in our area or ask your health care provider for a Park Prescription today.
