Park and Recreation Month 2020: We Are Parks and Recreation

July is right around the corner, and that means it's almost Park and Recreation Month!

Every day, in communities across the country, the people of parks and recreation are making their communities better places to live, work and play. This year's theme is "We Are Parks and Recreation," and we want to highlight the diversity of park and recreation professionals and showcase their selfless work. It’s Park and Recreation Month, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by lifting up the people who make it happen all year long. You can join us in celebrating throughout the month by sharing your park and recreation story using the hashtag #WeAreParksAndRec.

Stay tuned, we will be releasing the logo, outreach toolkit and other resources soon. Be sure to check out the page below to see how we want to celebrate YOU throughout the entire month of July!
