County Recreation Joins in Celebration of July as National Park and Recreation Month

Montgomery County Recreation is encouraging residents to come out and enjoy some the hundreds of recreation programs and parks have to offer as the County joins in the celebration of July as national Park and Recreation Month. The opportunities offered contribute to a healthier lifestyle and enhance the quality of life for all ages, culture and abilities.

“Montgomery County is more welcoming, stronger, vibrant, and resilient because of the outstanding recreation programs and services,” said Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich. “I hope everyone will take advantage of all the excellent amenities offered by our team at Montgomery County Recreation and take some time this month to thank them for all their great work.”

The month-long celebration is a National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) initiative.

“July comes in with a bang with our Independence Day fireworks and concerts and throughout the month, we reach thousands of residents at our senior centers, community recreation centers and swimming pools, or through our summer programs which serve many age groups," said County Recreation Director Robin Riley. “The work we do every day makes a difference to those we serve. I am incredibly proud of the hard-working recreation team members who ensure our residents have high-quality, essential recreation services.”

Montgomery County Recreation and NRPA are encouraging residents to share their experiences, memories and stories about what the recreation department means to them. To share stories with Montgomery County Recreation, use the hashtag #RiseUpJuly on social media via Facebook and Twitter.
