July is National Parks & Recreation Month. Join us as we celebrate with a weekly Parks Make Life Better challenge encouraging Ventura to enjoy our parks, beaches, and open spaces. We love what we do and as Parks and Recreation professionals, the Department is committed to its mission, "To enrich the quality of life through parks, recreation experiences, and partnerships."
Throughout the month of July, we have fun activities planned to celebrate the value of parks and recreation in our community. Beginning July 6, a weekly social media challenge will be posted on the Department's Ventura Parks & Recreation Facebook page using the hashtag #ParksMakeLifeBetter. Residents who complete each weekly challenge will be entered into a raffle for free Parks & Recreation swag!
Enjoy a picnic at a City park. Bring food from home or grab takeout from a local restaurant for this picnic in a park challenge. Please remember to pick up your trash and leave the park clean for the next person to enjoy. For a list of City Parks, visit www.cityofventura.ca.gov/CityParks.
For your safety and the safety of others, please remember to follow all CDC guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID-19 when participating in this activity.
