July is National Park and Recreation Month. The National Recreation and Park Association urges everyone to enjoy local parks. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services, and so much more.
To celebrate National Park and Recreation Month, the Paducah Parks and Recreation Department has organized a Facebook contest called Where's Your Favorite Place to Play. From July 6 through 20, citizens and visitors are invited to post a picture of their favorite park space in Paducah and tell us in 50 words or less why that place is special. Prizes will be awarded to three winners.
Also during July, enjoy the Mobile Rec Program. Every Friday in July, in addition to a few other dates, the Parks Department's Mobile Recreation vehicle will visit various park locations in Paducah. There will be activities and giveaways. A parent or guardian needs to be present to register children on site. Mobile Rec is from 10 a.m. to noon at the different locations.
