NDPRAMark Fenton teaches North Dakota Recreation & Park Association State Conference Attendees How to Build Community

Sept. 4, 2013 — Landscape Structures Inc., the leading manufacturer of commercial playground equipment, along with its North Dakota playground consultant, Dakota Fence, is proud to support Keynote Mark Fenton, national public health, planning, and transportation consultant, an adjunct associate professor at Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and former host of the "America's Walking" series on PBS television, at the North Dakota Recreation & Park Association (NDRPA) State Conference.

After authoring many research publications and articles related to exercise science, physical activity promotion, and community level interventions, Fenton has become an advocate for building communities that support a healthier, more physically active population, and more sustainable and enjoyable lifestyles. The pathway there, he understands, can be very challenging. That’s why he works with organizations and communities around the country to build environments, policies, and programs that help to create places where more people walk, bicycle and take transit more of the time.
