Parks and Recreation Advocacy Video Toolkit
Parks and Recreation Promotional Video
KRPA collaborated with Feature Group to provide an exciting new benefit for our members. We assembled a short video to help promote the importance of having a vibrant recreation and parks department in every community across Kansas. What would happen to your community if we took away the parks, all recreational activities or the local pool? What impact would that have on your community’s economy or the moral of the community? What would occupy children’s time after school or in the summer?
Click here to view the video. This video shares personal testimony and experiences from patrons and business executives that share how park and recreation is making a difference every day. We hope this video will provide you an added resource to use with your local city councilmen, your chamber of commerce, community members and your legislators to share why parks and recreation in Kansas is vitally important. #LoveKSParkRec
