Monterey Park celebrates “Parks Make Life Better” Month with a scavenger hunt

​Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation Parks Association (NRPA), Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role recreation departments play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts in communities all across the country.

The City of Monterey Park Recreation and Community Services Department urges all residents to enjoy and recognize the social, physical, mental, economic, environmental, and community benefits derived from our parks. This July, we invite the community to celebrate “Parks Make Life Better” month by participating in our community scavenger hunt.
