Park and Recreation Month

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation's official Park and Recreation Month. A program of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the goal is to raise awareness of the vital impact that parks, recreation and conservation have on communities across the United States. 

On July 7, 2021, Town Council recognized the importance of parks and recreation in building healthy vibrant and active communities by declaring July as Park and Recreation Month in the Town of Mammoth Lakes.

Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories — moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen. 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.
