Celebrate Park and Rec Month with us!

Every park has a history made up of thousands of stories that help to define it. This July, we are telling our park and recreation story, 25 Years of Play!

Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories. Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services, and so much more.

Local parks have been essential throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with many of your community members finding a new appreciation for the essential spaces. This year for Park and Recreation Month, we are celebrating our story and highlighting our facilities, programs, and services now and for the last 25 years.
