Since 1985, people in the United States have celebrated Parks and Recreation Month in July to promote building strong, vibrant, and resilient communities through the power of parks and recreation, and to recognize the more than 160,000 full-time park and recreation professionals along with hundreds of thousands of part-time and seasonal workers and volunteers that maintain our country’s local, state and community parks. The services that park and recreation professionals provide are vital for our communities from protecting open space and natural resources to helping fight obesity and providing activities and resources for all people. This has been especially true throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Parks and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value park and recreation professionals bring to communities.
This July, Collier County Parks & Recreation is celebrating with the theme Our Park and Recreation Story! July is the perfect time to see what Collier County Parks & Recreation has to offer and share your stories about what parks and recreation means to you.
From providing special events to exciting sports leagues and everything in between, Collier County Parks & Recreation has a wide variety of programs that are not only fun, but also bring the community together. National Recreation and Park Association and Collier County Parks & Recreation are encouraging everyone to share their parks and recreation story on social media using #OurParkAndRecStory
