RecDesk salutes the nation’s parks and recreation departments and their members during July’s “Parks and Recreation” month. RecDesk is proud to work with so many super parks and recreation departments that genuinely care about the health, and well- being of their citizens. Thank you for promoting the health, and wellness of your community. As you celebrate the value that your organization brings to your members please feel free to share some of the images of your organization’s celebrations with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Please tag us at #RecDesk and #SuperJuly! For more information about parks and recreation month check out the National Recreation and Park Association’s website at www.nrpa.org/july.
Since 1985, July has been designated as “Parks and Recreation Month” by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).The purpose of Parks and Recreation month is “to promote the importance of parks and recreation in health and wellness, conservation and social equity, and to recognize the thousands of park and recreation employees that maintain our nation’s local and community parks”. This year the NRPA’s focus is your “super” parks and recreation department. All month the NRPA will be challenging you to take #superparkselfies to capture how your department powers your lives.
