Park and Recreation Month

We rise up for Parks and Recreation NRPAs park and Recreation Month logo

This Park and Recreation Month, we are bringing attention to how important it is to rise up and support parks and recreation, because every day, park and recreation professionals rise up for their communities in service of equity, climate-readiness and overall health and well-being.

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.

July is the perfect time to see what your local parks and recreation have to offer and share your stories about what parks and recreation mean to you.
