In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives designated July as National Park and Recreation Month in recognition of “the great societal value of parks and recreation facilities and their importance in local communities across the United States.” Since then, hundreds of park and recreation agencies across the country engage with their communities during Park and Recreation Month each year.
Columbia joins them in this endeavor. Mayor Brian Treece has proclaimed July as Parks and Recreation Month in the City of Columbia, MO.
In celebration of Parks and Recreation Month, Columbia Parks and Recreation is hosting a photo contest on Facebook. Participants have two chances to win $100 Parks & Rec Gift Certificate.
