Since 1985, America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. A program of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the goal is to raise awareness of the vital impact that parks and recreation has on communities across the U.S.

Stay tuned! The 2021 Park and Recreation Month theme should be released soon and this page will be updated with all the events and activities we have planned!

The 2020 theme, “We Are Parks and Recreation”, aims to introduce you to the creative, energetic, and diverse Parks and Recreation professionals that fulfill your Parks and Recreation needs all year long.
