Healthy Parks, Healthy People
Western Health is partnering with Parks Canada in a Healthy Parks, Healthy People initative. This Initiative aims to link outdoor physical activity with positive health outcomes and to engage people in active living in nature.
We are encouraging residents and visitors to Gros Morne National Park to experience the park for the health benefits that come from exposure to nature. Health care practitioners at the Bonne Bay Health Centre and satellite clinics will “prescribe” activities in the park to their patients and Parks Canada staff will distribute information about the initiative to visitors.
