Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Dallas joins with hundreds of park and recreation agencies across the nation in this celebration.

This year’s theme from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is, “Get Your Play On.” That call to play coincides perfectly with the focus of Dallas’ parks, recreation centers, athletic facilities, golf courses, community swimming pools, leisure programs for all ages, and family attractions including Bahama Beach Water Park and the historic Fair Park.

Park and recreation services are vital to Dallas. Protecting green space and natural resources, helping fight obesity, encouraging walking and biking, and providing activities, programming, and resources for all age groups and interests is at the very heart of what Dallas Park and Recreation Department does month in and month out.

Health experts consistently remind us how important play is to our mental wellbeing, physical health, and personal interactions with others. And we agree.

We hope you will take advantage of the many fun and beneficial activities and events in our parks and recreation centers that are planned throughout the month of July that will help you and your family Get Your Play On!
