Often people are unaware of how vital recreation and leisure are to the quality of their lives. While fun, happiness and play are vital to growth and development, the expanded role of public parks and recreation is more critical than ever. Whether we know it or not, programs, services, events and opportunities offered by local, state and national park and recreation agencies positively impact many areas of our lives and society as a whole.
Everyone in the world has somehow benefited by public park and recreation programs at some time in their lives - directly or indirectly. The time has come to make the connection between past experiences and today's success, yesterday's activities and tomorrow's physical and mental wellness and today's taxpayer support and safe communities for our children and grandchildren. So, whether an avid participant or occasional observer, enjoy the benefits. It's everyone's right!
