July is National Parks and Recreation Month
This July, Clarksville Parks and Recreation and NRPA are challenging everyone to get out and visit their community parks and recreation during national Park and Recreation Month.
This year’s theme, “OUT is IN,” encourages individuals, families, friends and coworkers to do something outside everyday that they would normally do inside. From picnicking in the park instead of sitting inside at a table to sending an email or even holding a meeting outside, there are small ways you can make going OUT part of your daily routine.
The parks and facilities run by Clarksville Parks and Recreation offer ample opportunities to go OUTside, get INspired, change your OUTlook and get INvolved. Check out our calendar at www.cityofclarksville.com/parks&rec
