What is “June is Parks and Recreation Month”?
Recreation Manitoba recognizes the month of June as “June is Recreation and Parks Month” (JRPM). JRPM provides the opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of parks and recreation and the role it plays in the quality of life for all Manitobans. Celebrating JRPM draws attention to the many benefits of recreation and parks for individual, communities, and the province.
This year, we are taking time to recognize outstanding individual or teams across Manitoba. These people have shown their dedication to the field of parks and recreation through the quality of their work and the passion for their community.
