Parks and Recreation Month

How are you spending National Parks and Recreation month? Check out the National Recreation and Park Association website to see how others are spending the month.

Therapeutic Recreation and Parks and Recreation work together very well. Parks and Recreation strives to advocate for the “immense value of parks and recreation to local communities.” (NRPA) Therapeutic Recreation professionals advocate the right to leisure for everyone…where can a lot of leisure be done? Parks and Recreation Centers! This is a great relationship to have. So go out there and celebrate Parks and Recreation Month, so we can support a valuable resource, but add in some TR flare. Also check out this YouTube video where TR and Parks and Recreation are coming together to build an accessible playground.
