July Is Parks & Recreation Month!

Take advantage of all the great parks and leisure service resources we have in our very own community!

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Parks and leisure services improves our physical and psychological health, strengthens our neighborhoods, and makes our community a more attractive place to live and work. Not to mention, being outdoors connects us to nature and helps us put balance in our lives.

Help us celebrate this July the importance of Bellevue's parks and recreational facilities!

Show us your WILD Side!

Take pictures or video of yourself, family, and friends with this poster showing America how "wild" you are about parks and recreation.  Post them to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Websites, and blogs.  Tag NRPA and email the link to  We’ll be featuring many of these photos in our social media posts, on our Facebook covers and possibly in future issues of our magazine!

Help spread the message throughout that parks and leisure services are an important and integral part of our lives here in Bellevue!
