July is National Parks and Recreation Month

What is National Park and Recreation Month?

National Parks and Recreation Month, is the time of year dedicated to the wonderful local and state parks that were created for our enjoyment and wellbeing. It was established in 1985, by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) to promote awareness about the importance of our National and State parks.

Throughout this month, the NRPA is planning special events and distributing digital/printed media to encourage all of us to take a break from our busy schedules to appreciate all the delightful parks and recreation resources in our communities. It is an important month to participate in because it helps remind our local leaders and legislation of how important it is to devote time, resources, and energy into maintaining our parks so that they can stay safe and clean.

Why are parks so important to us?
