Park and Recreation Professional Day
It's time to celebrate all that Park and Recreation professionals do for the communities across Kansas. Mark your calendar for Friday, July 16th!
Park and Recreation professionals play an integral role in the health and wellness of all Kansas communities for physical, mental and even environmental health.
This year, park usage increased exponentially as people relied on parks and recreation for their health and wellness. They provided the freedom that all citizens longed for during the stay-at-home orders. Unsung heroes showed up every day during the pandemic to keep those parks clean and beautiful... that's right, your local park professional. Last year, when we couldn't make it to the gym and our stress-levels were rising, who provided the endorphin-pumping classes virtually since we couldn't meet in person? That's right, your local recreation professional.
Take a moment this year to celebrate and thank a park and recreation professional on July 16, 2021.
