Parks and Recreation
July is Park and Recreation Month!
This July, join Calvert County Parks & Recreation for Park and Recreation Month, as we celebrate the selfless, passionate and essential work of park and recreation professionals who are providing services that are vital to a healthy Calvert County. Every day, in communities across the country, the people of parks and recreation are providing essential services and making their communities better places to live, work and play.
This year’s theme is "We Are Parks and Recreation," and we want to highlight the diversity of park and recreation professionals and showcase their work. It’s Park and Recreation Month, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by lifting up the people who make it happen all year long. You can join us in celebrating throughout the month on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/calvertcountyparks.
