Family Health & Fitness Day will be held on June 12, 2021! Celebrated the second Saturday in June each year, this special day promotes the importance of parks and recreation in keeping communities healthy.

Park and recreation agencies everywhere are encouraged to participate by sharing ways families can get active while practicing safe physical distancing on June 12 — whether through participating in virtual programs at home or in their local parks. Members of the healthcare community are encouraged to participate, as well, even as sponsors. 

The official 2021 Family Health & Fitness Day logo is now available!
