Get ready to get your play on this month with Willamalane and the National Recreation and Park Association.
Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. This year, it’s all about discovering the power of play. From learning a new sport like pickleball to meeting your friends on the patio, Willamalane parks and facilities are the places where everyone can play, regardless of age or ability.
Play at any age benefits both the mind and body. Research shows that play increases brain function, improves balance and builds stronger bones. It can even help you sleep better!
Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram throughout the month as we highlight special Get Your Play On activities. Come to the highlighted event, park or facility that day for a chance to win a Get Your Play On T-shirt. We want people to show us how they Get Their Play On by tagging #PlayOnJuly @ Willamalane.
So Get Your Play On with Willamalane — every single day in July — and reap the benefits!
