July is national Park and Recreation Month #spon #ad

logo  logo

July 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.

Do you LOVE your local parks and recreation? Then go on, brag about it this July and tell everyone what makes them so great! You might even WIN some great PRIZES! 
Check out the Show UR Love for Parks and Recreation Weekly Photo Contest! Submit photos that express your love for local parks and recreation areas following our weekly themes and get your friends to vote. We'll be rewarding weekly prizes of $100 gift cards and a grand prize of one $500 gift card at the end of the month. Find out more information and get those cameras ready!  

Show your LOVE! 

Download and print out the official Park and Recreation Month poster and fill in the blank with the reasons you love your local park and recreation in your community!  Then take a picture or even video yourself, family, and friends with this poster so you can show the LOVE.  
Post the photos and videos to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Websites, and blogs.  Tag NRPA and/or email the link to Use the hashtag #ParkRecLuv! 
We’ll be featuring many of these photos in our social media posts, on our Facebook covers and possibly in future issues of our magazine! Please note, Park and Recreation Month is a family-friendly activity.  Please no distasteful or vulgar photos or videos.
