Park and Recreation Month- Where Community Grows

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is the leading organization that’s dedicated to building strong communities through parks and recreation. Through professional development, grants, programs, and research, the NRPA supports parks and recreation all around the states. Their mission is to advance efforts that make parks and recreational areas a place to unplug and to enhance the quality of life for people.

July is Park and Recreation Month where everyone is encouraged to plan a visit to parks where so many experiences and memories are made. State and local parks are perfect for exploring nature with family and friends. Additionally, it’s an excellent way for kids to explore and and learn about wildlife. Celebrate Park and Recreation Month by planning a day trip to any local or State Park in Illinois.
