July is National Parks & Recreation Month

This year, National Parks and Recreation month comes at a time when San José PRNS has been critically involved in many aspects of the COVID-19 crisis response, from distributing food and necessities to tirelessly maintaining parks and trails so that everyone can enjoy the outdoors for their physical and mental health. Our foundation is people – parks and recreation professionals who are dedicated and passionate about delivering our vision: Healthy Communities that Inspire Belonging. We invite you to take “A Walk in the Park,” a podcast series featuring our PRNS team as they share their stories of providing the community with essential services.
