Recreation and Parks Month

What is Recreation and Park Month?

Recreation and Parks month logoIs an initiative through the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) to promote the benefits of a healthy and vibrant community such as Fort St John!

We are embracing this opportunity as a way to promote local programs and events, parks and facilities that are available for all citizens to enjoy. 

Join us as we celebrate the return of summer programming, get involved in fun outdoor activities and gain local support for parks and recreation centers and raise awareness for the role they play as a pathway to individual, community, and environmental well-being.
