The Grand Prairie Parks, Arts and Recreation Department is joining park and recreation agencies across the country to recognize the month of July with summer programs, events, contests and promotions. You can join in the celebration by participating in events and exclusive deals at Grand Prairie parks and recreation centers.

Through efforts by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the U.S. House of Representatives passed an official resolution for Park and Recreation Month in 2009 and introduced the resolution in 2017 and 2018. Park and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value park and recreation professionals bring to communities.
