July is Park and Recreation Month!


Every park has a history made up of thousands of stories that help to define it.  This July, let's tell our park and recreation story and provide opportunities for everyone in our communities to create their own stories as well.

Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories - moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen. Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life's special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services, and so much more. 

Local parks have been essential throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with many of our community members finding a new appreciation for these essential spaces. This year for Park and Recreation Month, we want to hear your stories about what our local parks and recreation means to you.

This year's theme for Park and Recreation Month is "Our Park and Recreation Story," and we want to highlight the stories of how your communities are stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation. Be sure to follow along and share your park and recreation stories on social media using #OurParkAndRecStory.
