This July we’re celebrating 30 years of Park and Recreation Month and the enduring importance of parks and recreation for the world. From the start, parks were created to serve the people—to give them a place to appreciate nature, exercise, socialize and have fun. This mission lives on and will continue to intensify into the future. This July, let’s celebrate the past, present and future of parks and recreation!
In 2015, we’re challenging you to get gnarly and rock Park and Recreation Month 80s-style. Maybe you’ll host a totally tubular aerobics dance party (leg warmers and headbands are a must!) or maybe an 80s movie night series — whatever you choose, have fun with it! Check back here often as we’ll be rolling out new materials and resources as we have them.
