The Tulsa County Parks Department and the National Recreation and Park Association announced this year’s Park and Recreation Month program of activities.
The 2012 theme of “Get Wild” encourages individuals, families, friends, and park-lovers everywhere to venture to their local parks and recreation areas to experience the many benefits they offer, such as programs to inspire healthy, active lifestyles and activities to appreciate nature and the environment.
“It’s our job to promote health and wellness throughout our community and have a lot of fun doing it!” said Richard Bales, Director of the Tulsa County Parks Department.
The Tulsa County Parks is going to “get wild” with a SPLASH BASH on Wednesday, July 25 from 12pm to 3pm at four county park pools; Chandler Park, LaFortune Park, O’Brien Park and South County Recreation Center. There will be food, music, pool games and prizes. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased at any participating park community or recreation center.
Tulsa County Parks provides recreational and leisure activities with opportunities in both natural and developed environments that promote health and wellness in order to improve the quality of life within the community.
