is National Park and Recreation Month and your local parks are
encouraging everyone to come out this month and experience all
the wonderful aspects of parks and recreation. Nationwide,
recreation departments have organized events and activities to
help families spend quality time together, enjoy nature and get
active. This provides a great opportunity to not only make the
most of the beautiful weather, but also to take a stand against
the obesity epidemic and technology trends that consistently
keep more kids indoors and living less active lifestyles.
part of Park and Recreation Month, the National Recreation and
Park Association is encouraging everyone to show the love for
local parks and recreation and wants everyone to answer the
question, "I Love my Parks and Recreation Because..." They have
a fill in the blank social media poster that can be filled in
and shared, and a fun month-long weekly photo contest that
encourages everyone to show and share the LOVE for local
parks!The NRPA website includes
information on all of the above initiatives, free downloadable
resources as well as a calendar of events scheduled nationwide.
kids out of school, the vacation celebration includes bouncing
off the walls and fighting over the TV, tablet and computer
screen. Think about your summer days as a kid - spending time
outside hunting for salamanders, playing kickball with
neighborhood friends, exploring the trails and woods, fun summer
camp days at your local rec center, and swimming until your
fingers shriveled. Many of us have so many happy memories from
summertime and want our children to have those same experiences
we can always tell them of the fun we had as kids, it
is so much better to show them. And you know what, you don't
have to go far to have these enriching experiences that make
lasting memories - you just have to head to your local parks and
recreation. There are great places right in your community to go
have some family fun all summer long!"
