The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) designated July as America’s official Park and Recreation month in 1985. This month is the perfect time to explore, enjoy, and celebrate our local area parks and recreational centers. The theme for July 2021 is “Our Park and Recreation Story”. Every person has a park story. 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. You can join in celebrating by sharing your park and recreation story using the hashtag #OurParkAndRecStory.
