July 1 marks the start of Park and Recreation Month and to celebrate, the Plainfield Park District is encouraging residents to get outside and discover the parks in their neighborhoods and beyond.
Residents can pick up a copy of Scout’s Summer Fun Hunt, a map that will help them navigate their way to points of interest all over the Park District.
Maps will be available at pop up locations throughout the month of July and starting July 1 in the lobby of the Prairie Activity & Recreation Center, 24550 W. Renwick Rd., Mon-Fri. from 9a-4:30p.
Best of all, residents who visit at least 6 locations can turn in their map at the end of the summer to receive a prize.
Park and Recreation month celebrates the ongoing mission of parks programs around the country that encourage healthy, active communities, provide therapeutic recreation services, and improve the mental and emotional health of all citizens.
Maps will also be available (starting July 1) Mon-Fri from 9a-4:30p in the lobby of the Prairie Activity & Recreation Center, 24550 W. Renwick Rd. and online at plfdparks.org.
