Celebrate National Parks & Rec Month

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. A program of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the goal is to raise awareness of the essential services that park and recreation professionals provide to communities across the U.S.

It’s time to share how We Rise Up for Parks and Recreation! 

Throughout July we will be celebrating Park and Recreation Month by highlighting the ways Northglenn is stronger, more vibrant, and more resilient because of parks and recreation by using the hashtag #RiseUpJuly. 

Check out the list above for fun activities in July, which includes FREE yard game parties on Festival Lawn, an interactive scavenger hunt (with prizes) at E.B Rains Jr. Memorial Park, FREE admission days to the Northglenn Recreation Center and Kiwanis Pool, and a citywide photo contest. 

We encourage everyone that supports parks and recreation to share how it has impacted their lives by tagging us on Facebook using the hashtags #RiseUpJuly and #PlayNorthglenn.
