For children and adults, play is a vital part of our mental wellbeing, physical health and personal interactions. This July, Parker Parks and Recreation is challenging everyone to Get Your Play On and celebrate National Park and Recreation month.
July 1-31 - Grab the family and take a hike on one of the many trails around Parker. Better yet, pack a picnic and enjoy a sunny day at Tallman Meadow Park, McCabe Meadows or a new favorite spot. Don't forget to share your pictures with us, tag @ParkerRec on Faceboook, Instagram or Twitter and use #ParkerPlayOnJuly and #ParkerRec.
