Before the end of July, make it a point to get outdoors to participate in some of the perks of Park and Recreation Month . Since 1985, the National Recreation and Park Association has called July the official month for outdoor fun. As a result, parks across America kick off summer programs, organize and recruit volunteers, and promote physical activity in natural settings.
To celebrate this year’s 31 days of festivity, plenty of wide-open places are offering ways to help you enjoy your July adventures outside. This Saturday, the state of Florida is waiving admission fees to each of its 160 state parks . Denver's website lists 31 activities , one for each day of the month, for park enthusiasts to enjoy.
