July is National Parks & Recreation Month

Each July since 1985, America has celebrated 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, recreation and conservation have on communities across the U.S.

This July, Marana Parks and Recreation and NRPA are celebrating 30 years of Park and Recreation Month and the enduring importance of parks and recreation for the world. Parks are the cornerstone of nearly every community, serving millions of people as the places anyone can go to be active, live healthier, connect with nature and gather together. Parks and recreation enrich Marana resident lives and make the community a better place to live, work, or visit.  For more information on National Parks and Recreation month, go to www.nrpa.org/july or search using #JulyPRM30.
