Explore Recreation In June

Explore Recreation In June
Posted on 05/31/2019




The Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA), recognizes the month of June as “June is Recreation and Parks Month” (JRPM). JRPM highlights the many benefits recreation and parks bring to our communities and acknowledges the strong foundation of parks and recreation facilities and programs in Alberta. Celebrating JRPM draws attention to the many benefits of recreation and parks for individual Albertans, communities and the province.

Our long-term vision is to make JRPM a household name, so that when June rolls around, Albertans are eager and excited to spend the month (and beyond) enjoying all the recreational activities and parks facilities they have at their disposal.



June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is all about helping people celebrate the outdoors by getting outside and exploring recreation with their families, friends, schools, communities, and more!

You can promote JRPM through already-established events and programs in your community, as well as use the toolkit to support your ideas.



Use the hashtag #JRPM in a photo of you, your school, municipality, workplace, or group doing a June is Recreation and Parks Month activity! Ensure your account is public so we can see it and it doesn’t get missed.

Stay tuned for the prizes that will be given away. Check in with our ARPA social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) to see all of the #JRPM activities being done this month and all year round!

*The time frame to be entered for a prize is June 1st 2019 – June 30th 2019. Each public photo posted is an entry for the prize.*
