Yuma’s park & rec celebrates the month of July


YUMA — Yuma’s park & rec have been informing the community that the month of July is parks and recreation month.
“Our mission is to enrich lives through quality programs, experiences, and facilities that preserve the past, provide for the present, plan for the future, and promote the spirit of fun,” says the Yuma park & rec team.
Since 1985, people in the United States have celebrated Park and Recreation Month in July to promote building strong, vibrant, and resilient communities through the power of parks and recreation and to recognize the more than 160,000 full-time park and recreation professionals — along with hundreds of thousands of part-time and seasonal workers and volunteers — that maintain our country’s local, state and community parks.
