With the support of national and provincial parks and recreation associations, the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association supports June is Recreation & Parks Month to acknowledge the contributions leisure facilities and parks make to quality of life in Saskatchewan.
Across Canada, recreation service providers and park authorities dedicate the month of June to gather their communities together to celebrate the return of summer programming, recognize volunteers, get people involved in fun outdoor activities and gain local support for parks and recreation.
Recreation provides personal, economic, social, and ecological benefits to our people, our communities and our Province. These benefits are significant and critical to the vitality of Saskatchewan.
We know what you're thinking, "This could be a lot of work"? It's not! Just proclaim June is Recreation & Parks Month and recognize it in an activity or event that is already happening in your community this June.
