Since 1985, America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. A program of the National Recreation and Park association (NRPA), the goal is to raise awareness of the vital impact that parks and recreation has on communities across the U.S.
It’s time to share Our Park and Recreation Story! We’re celebrating Park and Recreation Month this July by highlighting the stories of how our community is stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation. In addition to sharing our stories on social media, watch for our annual Park and Recreation Month Duck Hunt activity on July 12 through 16, along the Cherry Creek Regional Trail. Follow Parker Parks and Recreation on Facebook and Twitter (@ParkerRec) for activity updates and more about National Park and Recreation month.
