Summertime is Parks and Recreation Season

Logo-Love-My-Park-July-Park-Rec-MonthThe Summer Solstice is a week away. What does that typically mean? Warm weather, beaches, parks, no school, family time, summer camps, vacations. But it has a whole different meaning here on our niche community blog: the recreation world. Parks and recreation agencies are in full swing during the busy season, and North America is celebrating the job they do. June is Parks and Recreation Month in Canada and July is Parks and Recreation Month in the US. 

Parks and Recreation in Canada:
