The Mayor and Council proclaimed July as Parks and Recreation Month in Rockville in June, presenting the proclamation to Chip Boylan, a member of the Rockville Recreation and Parks Foundation and the Rockville Recreation and Park Advisory Board.
Most residents live within a 10-minute walk of at least one of Rockville’s 67 parks. Visit rockvillemd.gov/parks for more information about the city’s open spaces.
“Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories — moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen,” according to the National Recreation and Parks Association. “Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services and so much more.”
