Caddo Parish, LA–All throughout the month of July, the Parish of Caddo is recognizing National Park and Recreation Month, and National Park Professionals Day on July 17.  This month aims to celebrate the selfless, passionate and essential work of park and recreation professionals who are providing services that are vital to a healthy Caddo Parish.

Caddo Parks and Recreation is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), by inviting you to learn more about our local park and recreation professionals and the essential services they provide. With everything from our multiple park sites, innovative nature programming and recreational opportunities, there are plenty of ways that you can celebrate with us!

“Our parks play a critical role in our Parish,” said Patrick Wesley, Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation Director.  “Parks and recreational spaces are integral to quality of life, and we are proud to serve to citizens of Caddo Parish to offer our spaces and programs to enhance our Parish as a great place to live and play,” said Wesley.

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 #WeAreParksAndRec.

NRPA also encourages people to get creative throughout the month by participating in the Thank a Park and Rec Pro contest. Film a video thanking a park and recreation professional in your community for the services they provide and post it on social media using the hashtag #ThankAParkAndRecPro for a chance to win prizes throughout July.
