Community Wellness

What Is A National Demonstration Site?

National Demonstration Sites (NDS) are exemplary models of how play environments can be effectively utilized to improve community wellness. These sites are designed following rigorous research and are recognized for their contribution to promoting physical activity, inclusivity, and engagement with nature. They serve as inspirational benchmarks for communities seeking to optimize their recreational spaces, and CORE research helps create them.
