Parks & Rec Month


Erie Parks & Recreation is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), by inviting you to explore A Lifetime of Discovery with us this month.  Playgrounds, recreation centers, sports leagues, summer camps — these are just a few of the things that come to mind when we think of parks and recreation. But, parks and recreation is so much more than that! We challenge you to explore the “undiscovered” roles of local parks and recreation, like science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programming; senior programs; innovative health and wellness opportunities; community celebrations; outdoor education; trail connectivity and more! Redefine how you think about your local parks and recreation here in Erie, and uncover a lifetime of discovery!

July 20th  – 31st
