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.

This year’s 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.
