PARC (Parks and Recreation Cooperative), serving the communities of Maplewood and Richmond Heights Missouri, is Game On for Park and Recreation Month
Get in the game with us this July by joining us in some FUN and FREE events! (see details on events below)
Get ready to get in the game this July with PARC and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).
Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by NRPA, Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role local parks and recreation, such as PARC, play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts in communities all across the country.
This year, it’s all about highlighting the fun, games and exciting offerings at your local parks and recreation centers. From providing special events to exciting sports leagues and everything in between, PARC provides a wide variety of programs that are not only fun, they also bring the community together. NRPA and PARC are encouraging everyone to get out there and get in the game in their own way at their local parks and rec facilities.
In the cities of Maplewood and Richmond Heights, you can celebrate Park and Recreation Month by participating in the events that we are hosting in July 2019.
“July is the perfect time to highlight all the benefits parks and recreation provides right here in Richmond Heights, Maplewood, and Brentwood,” said PARC Director, Teresa Proebsting. "Our local parks and recreation directly contribute to reduced obesity rates, an improved ecosystem and increased property values.”
PARC is leading initiatives and providing opportunities for people of all ages to achieve healthier lifestyles, promote and understand nature and conservation as well as bringing the community closer through a variety of programs and services.
NRPA also encourages everyone that supports parks and recreation to share how they are Game On for parks and recreation with the hashtag #GameOnJuly. For more information about Park and Recreation month, visit www.nrpa.org/July.
