July is Park and Recreation Month

Thu June 27, 2024

For nearly 40 years, July has been celebrated as Park and Recreation Month, highlighting the vital role parks play in building strong, vibrant, and resilient communities. This month, we honor over 160,000 full-time park and recreation professionals, along with countless part-time, seasonal workers, and volunteers who maintain our local, state, and community parks.

This year's theme, "Where You Belong," celebrates how park and recreation professionals foster a sense of belonging through inclusive programs, essential services for all ages and abilities, and safe, accessible spaces for meaningful connections.
