This July, NPPGov is Game On! for Park and Recreation Month.
Public parks create an environment to learn and grow and contribute to your community’s overall health. July is the perfect time to get out and see the great things happening at your local parks and recreation centers and meet the people who make it happen!
Parks and protected public lands are proven to improve water quality, protect groundwater, prevent flooding, improve the quality of the air we breathe, provide vegetative buffers to development, produce habitat for wildlife, and provide a place for children and families to connect with nature and recreate outdoors together.
NRPA encourages people that support parks and recreation to share why they think it’s important with the hashtag #GameOnJuly.
