June is Recreation and Parks Month

It’s all about Parks and Recreation!

June is Recreation and Parks Month is all about celebrating the many benefits of parks and recreation for local communities. Ontarian’s believe that recreation and parks are essential services for a healthy community (PRO, 2009).

JRPM is your chance to shine a light on the great programs, facilities and events that run in your community that help keep people active and healthy.

It’s super easy and super fun to be involved. First, become a JRPM Community Ambassador, then register your events on the JRPM website. Don’t forget to be social and like June is Recreation and Parks Month on Facebook and follow Parks and Recreation Ontario (@PROntario) on Twitter. Our hashtag is #RecAndParksMonth.

This year, our featured resource is the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Check out how you can participate or support a local plan to clean up any shoreline in your community.
