The American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation (AAPAR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life by promoting creative and active lifestyles through meaningful physical activity, recreation, and fitness across the lifespan, with particular focus on community based programs. It is one of five national associations that are part of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). AAPAR was formed in 2005 as a result of a merger between the American Association for Active Lifestyles and Fitness (AAALF; with roots dating to 1949) and the American Association for Leisure and Recreation (AALR; with roots dating to 1939), both of which were AAHPERD associations.

—Angela Davis (b. 1944)

—Caroline Fairfield Corbin (b. c. 1835?)
