Park and Recreation Month 2015

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives officially mandated July as “Park and Recreation Month.”


This July we’re celebrating 30 years of Park and Recreation Month and the enduring power of parks and recreation for the world.


Various research studies are confirming that community parks and recreation, green space and time outdoors is critical for creating healthy, active and sustainable communities. You can experience the benefits by visiting your community parks and recreation any time of the year, and especially during Park and Recreation Month.


Hundreds of park and recreation agencies across the country will be engaging with their communities during Park and Recreation Month.
