N.H. seeks to improve recreation options

CONCORD, N.H. — A five-year plan for outdoor recreation in New Hampshire could spur the creation of more community playgrounds, walking trails for older residents, and year-round activities in state parks.

The state Division of Parks and Recreation is required to report on trends and priorities every five years to remain eligible for federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grants. The latest version, released Thursday, brings together state ­research, surveys and focus group data that will be used by government agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and communities statewide.
