[ARCHIVED] Celebrating National Park & Recreation Month

Parks Month

"Where Community Grows" in the City of Schertz: A Month-long Celebration of Schertz Parks and Recreation  

July is here, and the City of Schertz is gearing up to celebrate National Park and Recreation Month! The month-long celebration is a chance to highlight the remarkable efforts of the Parks and Recreation team, who work diligently to maintain and support the beautiful open spaces in our community while also offering many opportunities for leisure.  

July will be an action-packed month in our community as Schertz Parks and Recreation has prepared a lineup of FUN activities suitable for all ages and abilities. Whether you're into twilight yoga, pickleball, pupsicles in the park, a fun-filled family field day, or even an epic foam party, we have something for everyone!  

Schertz Parks & Recreation Director Lauren Shrum comments, “We are so excited to celebrate National Park & Recreation Month in Schertz and this year's theme is ‘Where Community Grows.’ Our Parks team literally makes things grow - they plant flowers and trees and maintain irrigation systems; our Recreation team creates events where the community comes together to have FUN; and our Civic Center team provides beautiful spaces for residents to celebrate life's events. This team is crucial to maintaining a great quality of life in Schertz where community grows every day!”   

Schertz Parks and Rec is joining the nationwide initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in commemorating Park and Recreation Month. The community is invited to share their personal experiences, cherished memories, and stories about the significance of parks and recreation in their lives. Whether it's nature education or simply basking in the sun, there are countless ways for you to celebrate along with us.  

The NRPA and Schertz Parks and Rec encourages everyone who supports parks and recreation to share how it has improved their quality of life, as well as why their local park and recreation professionals are important to them, on social media with the hashtag #WhereCommunityGrows and #SchertzParksandRec.
