July is Park and Recreation Month and we’re rising up for parks and recreation at the City of La Marque! #RiseUpJuly
Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the essential and powerful role local park and recreation professionals — such as our staff at The City of La Marque — play in building stronger, more vibrant, and more resilient communities all across the country.
This July, we are bringing attention to how important it is to rise up and support the field of parks and recreation because every day, park and recreation professionals rise up for their communities in service of equity, climate-readiness, and overall health and well-being.
In La Marque, you can celebrate Park and Recreation Month by visiting our parks and engaging in our outdoor recreational activities: fishing, boating, kayaking, sailing, sports, and many more!
The City of La Marque is leading initiatives and providing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, and identities to achieve healthier lifestyles, promote and understand nature and environmental resilience, as well as bring the community closer through a variety of programs and services.
NRPA encourages everyone that supports parks and recreation and shares it with their communities. For more information, visit www.nrpa.org/July.
