Join us as we celebrate, “Where Community Grows”
Since 1985, July has been celebrated as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the essential and powerful role local park and recreation professionals — such as our staff at Hyland Hills Parks and Recreation District — play in building stronger, more vibrant and more resilient communities all across the country.
This July, we will celebrate the vital role park and recreation professionals play in bringing people together, providing essential services and fostering the growth of our communities. “July is the perfect time to share how our park and recreation professionals in contribute to the overall health, well-being and growth of our community,” said Kellie Flowers, Communications Manager. “We encourage everyone to come celebrate the power of parks and recreation with us this July.”
We’re leading initiatives and providing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and identities to achieve healthier lifestyles, promote and understand nature and environmental resilience, as well as bring the community closer through a variety of programs and services.
NRPA encourages everyone who supports parks and recreation to share how it has impacted their lives with the hashtag . For more information, visit www.nrpa.org/July.
