This July, the City of NMB P&R is celebrating with the theme "Our Park and Recreation Story". All month long we'll be highlighting the stories of how our community is stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation.
Since 1985, America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role local park and recreation professionals, such as our staff at City of NMB P&R, play in building stronger, more vibrant and more resilient communities all across the country.
Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories-moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen. Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. 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.
NRPA encourages everyone that supports parks and recreation to share show it has impacted their lives with the hashtag #OurParkAndRecStory.
July is the perfect time to highlight all the stories, memories and experiences that park and recreation professionals help make happen right here in North Myrtle Beach. We encourage everyone in NMB to come create their own parks and recreation story with us in July.
