Trophy Club, TX (July 10, 2021) – This July, the Town of Trophy Club is celebrating National Park and Recreation Month. Trophy Club is stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation. According to NRPA’s 2020 Engagement with Parks Report, an overwhelming majority of people living in the U.S. assert that they benefit from local parks and that their communities benefit from local parks.
“Easy access to parks, green spaces, and recreation areas are critical to the wellbeing of urban communities, especially ours” stated Mayor Fleury. “From improving the health and wellness of our residents to creating a healthier physical environment, our parks are vital.”
In addition, it’s not just important to support parks and recreation as a whole, it’s important for your health and wellness and it benefits EVERYONE in that way! Did you know:
With so many reasons why, it’s no wonder Trophy Club is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, (the initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association), by inviting our community to share their experiences, memories and stories about what parks and recreation mean to them. With everything from our wonderful Community Events, Community Pool and Splash Pad, Athletic Courts, Trails, Parks and Paths, there are plenty of ways that you can celebrate with us as well!
"With a team in place like ours and the priority Town Council has placed on keeping the Towns' aesthetic and recreational value high, I can't think of a better place for people to experience the benefits that Parks and Recreation bring into their daily lives," said Town Manager Wade Carroll.
NRPA encourages people that support parks and recreation to share their park and recreation story, as well as why their local park and recreation professionals are important to them, with the hashtag #OurParkAndRecStory.
