Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. July is a great time to highlight all the many valuable benefits Parks and Recreation brings to your neighborhood – from health and wellness to nature to community spirit and social equity. This July, we want everyone talking about what they love about parks and recreation and why parks and recreation are so vital in our lives!

National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA)
