Park and Recreation Month is an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), where communities like ours share their experiences, memories and stories about what parks and recreation mean to them. This year’s theme — “Where You Belong” — highlights the many ways park and recreation professionals across the country foster a sense of belonging in their community.

Cooper City encourages everyone who supports parks and recreation to share how it has fostered belonging, as well as why their local park and recreation professionals are important to them, on social media with #WhereYouBelong #CooperCity.
