June is Recreation and Parks Month

June was full of ways to get active each and every day!

Thanks for participating in JRPM 2015 and making it a great campaign! A big thank you to all the JRPM Ambassadors across Ontario who helped promote the importance and benefits of recreation and parks. Be sure to like June is Recreation and Parks Month on Facebook and follow Parks and Recreation Ontario (@PROntario) on Twitter for information on future JRPM themes.

Summer is almost over, but during June, we collected great JRPM program ideas. Check out the entries here and get inspired to create similar programs next summer! You can still add your own great program ideas here.

2015 is Canada’s Year of Sport – and so our theme for June is Recreation and Parks Month is Play Every Day! Play can be formal, organized sport or informal recreation and games. It’s just important that we celebrate the benefits of being active each and every day!

June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is an exciting way to increase awareness of the value and important benefits of recreation and parks to individuals, families, and communities.
