This July, join KC Parks for Park and Recreation Month, as we celebrate the selfless, passionate and essential work of park and recreation professionals who are providing services that are vital to a healthy community.
KC Parks is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), by inviting you to follow us on social media to learn more about our local park and recreation professionals and the essential services they provide.
NRPA encourages people that support parks and recreation to share their park and recreation story, as well as why their local park and recreation professionals are important to them, with the hashtag #WeAreParksAndRec.
NRPA also encourages people to get creative throughout the month by participating in the Thank a Park and Rec Pro contest. Film a video thanking a park and recreation professional in your community for the services they provide and post it on social media using the hashtag #ThankAParkAndRecPro for a chance to win prizes throughout July.
