      Oklahoma Baptist University College of Nursing has teamed up with the city of Shawnee to help Shawnee citizens to become more physically active, particularly by utilizing free recreational facilities such as parks.  This website serves as a reference and guide to locate parks in your community, provide reviews about parks, and reservation information.  Did you know 31.1% of students play video/computer games or use a computer for something other than school work 3 or more hours per day on an average school day? (CDC, 2010)

Our goal is to decrease that number by 5% by the 2020 CDC report.

By creating this website we also hope to decrease the obesity rate and inactivity rate to promote a more healthier active lifestyle to improve the quality of life.

This is made possible by OBU College of Nursing and City of Shawnee.  Special thanks to David Jones, Elizabeth Gallaway, Danielle Taylor, Sarah Payne, Eliya Bolgrin, Kamau Mosley, Christine Clark, and Susie Killingsworth for all their hard work.
