Since 1985, America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. A program of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the goal is to raise awareness of the vital impact that parks and recreation has on communities across the U.S.
This July, Schertz Parks & Recreation is Game On for Park and Recreation Month! All month long, we’ll be celebrating the fun and games that local parks and recreation offers to residents of all ages and abilities. Every Tuesday in July we’ll be hosting a Tactical Laser Tag League in Pickrell Park (call the Parks & Recreation Office to register) and every Friday in July there will be a free family activity across the city.
On Friday, July 5, we’re hosting a Family Game Day at Pickrell Pool during regular operating hours (12:00 - 7:00 p.m.) Join us for giant yard games such as Jenga, Connect Four, and checkers, as well as an inflatable water slide!
On Friday, July 12, we’re hosting a Teen Night at Wendy Swan Memorial Park Pool from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. There will be music, free pizza, and free swimming for teens 13-18 years old. Capacity is limited for this event.
On Friday, July 19, a Float & Flick featuring the movie Finding Dory, will be hosted at Pickrell Park Pool from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.
On Friday, July 26, a Movie in the Park featuring The Incredibles 2, will be hosted at Rhine Valley Park from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.
