National Parks and Recreation Month is here and this July, the city of Peoria is celebrating parks, trails, and open spaces with the national theme: Our Park and Recreation Story.
Peoria is home to 31 neighborhood parks and three large community parks that offer a variety of amenities such as fishing lakes, dog parks, multi-purpose fields, playgrounds, and public art.
Additionally, Peoria has four mountains, trails and scenic multi-use pathways as well as river trails that traverse the city. These amenities are an important part of the community, and in celebration of Parks and Recreation Month -- an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association -- we invite residents to share their experiences, memories, and stories about what parks and recreation mean to them.
Share your story on social media and tag the City of Peoria on Facebook at @PeoriaAZRec, on Twitter at @PeoriaAZ and on Instagram @peoriaazcam.
