June is Recreation & Parks Month

Each June, communities across Ontario celebrate June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM).  JRPM is recognized by municipalities, community organizations, and schools as a way of promoting the benefits of being active and recognizing the contribution that recreation and parks make to quality of life. 

Access to park and recreation is a fundamental human need that helps foster personal health, strong communities, and social inclusion. JRPM celebrates Ontario’s spectacular parks and recreation services and raises awareness for the role they play as a pathway to individual, community, and environmental well-being.
Recreation and parks are vital for our well-being. This June as part of Recreation and Parks Month we encourage you to explore Collingwood’s network of trails, playgrounds and green spaces. Check out our JRPM Activity Calendar and download the JRPM Activity Bingo for fun activities to help you get started.
