July is Park & Rec Month

This July, our nation celebrates July is Park and Recreation Month! Every day, in communities across the country, the people of parks and recreation are providing essential services and making their communities better places to live, work and play. We have started to redefine the field of parks and recreation as an essential, vital necessity by sharing how park and recreation professionals are tackling our most pressing environmental and social challenges.

Our citizens will be able to join each other in a virtual celebration including art contests and family activities. You can check out our current parks and facilities days and hours at our parks update page. The theme for this is year is “We are Parks and Recreation.” It will highlight and showcase all the efforts of the Recreation Services’ amazing team members who make parks and recreation great! Please check back weekly for calendar updates on activities and events!
