Celebrate National Parks and Recreation Month in July and pick up the new program guide available July 13

Tucson residents know their parks and recreation facilities provide places to get active, explore nature or connect with community members. But what they may not know is that their parks and recreation also contribute to improved health outcomes, higher property values and environmental sustainability.

Parks and recreation have the power to strengthen communities, transform lives and protect the future. That’s why this year, Tucson Parks and Recreation joins cities across the country in celebrating the power of parks and recreation for the 30th anniversary of Park and Recreation Month—an annual event created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and celebrated in July since 1985.

Tucson is recognized by the KaBOOM! organization as a Playful City USA for the ninth year in a row and Parks and Recreation is an integral piece. One way to find out about activities going on in Tucson Parks and Recreation is by picking up a copy of the Fall 2015 Program Guide and Class Catalog that will be released Monday, July 13 and can be found at any of our recreation centers and facilities and many of the local libraries. The fall issue can also be viewed online at: https://www.tucsonaz.gov/parks.

The Program Guide contains complete information on leisure classes, KIDCO After-school, aquatics, sports programs and registration. It also contains valuable information on other programs and services, including the Department’s recreation, senior, and fitness centers, Reid Park Zoo, Tucson City Golf courses and swimming pools. Whether you enjoy being active in slow-pitch softball leagues, want to design amazing jewelry, learn digital photography skills, or create beautiful pottery and ceramics pieces, there truly is something for everyone in Tucson Parks and Recreation.

Residents and non-city residents may register for all leisure and Adaptive Aquatic classes by using EZEEreg online at: www.EZEEreg.com. Please see the program guide for registration information and deadlines. For questions or more information on registration or programs, contact Registration Services at 791-4877.
