June is Parks and Recreation Month

CPRA celebrates the month of June as Parks and Recreation Month.  We take this opportunity to recognize the benefits of parks and recreation, and encouraging Canadians to get out and be active in their communities.  This initiative raises awareness about the importance of parks and recreation and the role it plays in the quality of life for all Canadians.


CPRA is encouraging followers on Twitter and Facebook, to show us what ‘June is Parks and Recreation Month’ means to you.  Post pictures to @CPRA_ACPL or to Canadian Parks and Recreation Association on Facebook, using #JPRM2017 over the month of June.  

We encourage everyone to use inspiration from the ParticipACTION 150PlayList and enjoy the start of summer! 

All participants will be entered into a draw for the chance to WIN 1 of 3 - $50 Mountain Equipment Co-op gift cards to start your summer off right with new recreation gear!    Whether you are taking a walk in your neighbourhood, joining a softball game, participating in a fitness class or enjoying a picnic in the park we want to see your photos.  So get those cameras ready to take some pictures! 

Post your pictures all month long!

But we want you to celebrate as well, so we're encouraging you to celebrate in the following ways! 

1. Organize an Event - We've even got some great resources to help you get started.
