Park and Recreation Month 2021: Our Park and Recreation Story

July is Park and Recreation Month!

Every park has a history made up of thousands of stories that help to define it. This year’s theme for Park and Recreation Month is “Our Park and Recreation Story." This July, let’s tell our park and recreation story and provide opportunities for everyone in our communities to create their own stories, as well.

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. So this July celebrate in your local parks and follow along on social media using #OurParkAndRecStory.
