Every July, the National Recreation and Park Association sponsors National Park and Recreation Month to highlight the benefits access to quality parks, recreation and cultural arts programming brings to the public. Each year’s celebration includes a unique theme. For 2023, we’re highlighting ‘Where Community Grows.’

This year’s theme celebrates the many ways that park and recreation professionals build strong, vibrant and resilient communities all year long, as well as how community members can support the work of their local agencies.

Here on our PlayKettering website and on our social channels throughout July, we’ll be highlighting the projects, initiatives and people that have helped Kettering become a stronger and more vibrant community over the past year. Stay tuned also for a very special video celebrating parks and recreation in Kettering!

We’re also curious about your story. July is the perfect time to see what Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts has to offer and to share your stories about what parks and recreation mean to you. If you have a story to share with us, let us know by following PlayKettering on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
