Mammoth Lakes, CA – Summer is here, which means it’s time for Mammoth Lakes to get your play on! This July, the Town of Mammoth Lakes Parks and Recreation Department is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and all the ways parks and recreation has the power to transform our daily lives.
On June 21, the Mammoth Lakes Town Council adopted a Proclamation declaring July 2017 as Park and Recreation Month, affirming that parks and recreation are vitally important to establishing and maintaining quality of life, ensuring the health of all citizens, and contributing to the economic and environmental well-being of our community.
“From providing safe places to play, get fit and stay healthy, to fostering new relationships and forging a connection with nature, our community park and recreation facilities and signature camps and programs provide valued services, all leading to an enhanced quality of life,” stated Stuart Brown, Parks and Recreation Director. “The Parks and Recreation Department is proud to be part of this nationwide event and month-long celebration to highlight the power of play and essential value of local parks and recreation.”
ALL RECREATION – ALL THE TIME!
