Get ready to discover your super powers this July with Allen Parks & Recreation and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by NRPA, Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role local parks and recreation play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts in communities all across the country.

This year it’s all about discovering your super powers at your local park and recreation facilities. From learning a new skill like gardening to meeting your fitness goals, your Allen, Texas park and recreation facilities can have you feeling like a superhero before July is through. NRPA and Allen Parks & Recreation are encouraging everyone to get out there to experience the power of parks and recreation for themselves.

In Allen, you can celebrate this super-powered month by enjoying a Dive-In Movie, exercising at Joe Farmer Recreation Center, participating in the programs and events at Allen Senior Recreation Center, and browsing all of vendors at the Community Garage Sale.

Allen Parks & Recreation is leading initiatives and providing opportunities for people to achieve healthier lifestyles, promote and understand nature and conservation as well as bringing the community closer through a variety of programs and services.

Nationally, NRPA is celebrating with a month-long #SuperParkSelfie photo contest and is challenging people to get out to their park and recreation facilities and capture the super powers they gain from them. NRPA also encourages everyone to share their support of parks and recreation on social media with the hashtag #SuperJuly.
