Park and Rec MonthThis toolkit is where you can find the materials you need to celebrate Park and Recreation Month at your agency.

July 2015 marks 30 years of Park and Recreation Month and the enduring importance of parks and recreation for the world. This July, let’s celebrate the past, present and future of parks and rec!

We’re challenging you to get gnarly and rock Park and Recreation Month 80s-style. Maybe you’ll host a totally tubular aerobics dance party (leg warmers and headbands are a must!) or an 80s movie night series — have fun with it! Check back often as we’ll post new materials and resources as we have them.

Have your local government officially declare July 2015 as Park and Recreation Month! Below is a PDF of the original 2009 declaration from the U.S. House of Representatives, and a template that you can customize and print on your office agency/government letterhead.
