July- National Park and Recreation Month

Park and Recreation Month

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives officially mandated July as “Park and Recreation Month.” Hundreds of park and recreation agencies will celebrate with their communities this July. This July we’re celebrating the super powers of parks and recreation and all the ways these local, community resources add value to our daily lives. We’re challenging everyone to discover their super powers at their local parks and recreation facilities whether it’s running a mile, building a new network of friends or finding your green thumb.
