NRPA's Park and Recreation Month

Park and Recreation Month 2020 Header

July is National Park and Recreation Month! This celebration was created by the National Recreation and Parks Association, as a way to highlight the essential services that the people in recreation and parks provide and the ways they are making our communities better places to live, work and play. This year’s theme is “We are Parks and Recreation,” and we want to shine a light on the diversity of our staff, our participants and our programs.

Join us for this month-long celebration by sharing your Columbus Recreation and Parks Department story on social media with the hashtag #WeAreParksAndRec. Be sure to check our social channels throughout July for great photos, videos and more!

We take great pride in being responsive to the needs of our community, and this year is no exception. Although COVID-19 has presented significant challenges for our city and our nation, we remain committed to providing access to needed resources.
