Golden Valley Is A Parkinson Friendly Community

Cities in Minnesota are learning to support those living with Parkinson’s by working to increase understanding of the disease and helping people remain active and engaged in the community for as long as possible.

The National Parkinson Federation of Minnesota designated Golden Valley a Parkinson Friendly Community in 2016 based on the accessibility of City parks and trails as well as training provided to police, firefighters, and first responders about how to recognize basic Parkinson symptoms.
