Parks and Recreation Month Challenge Is On!

July 9, 2020

This July, Martin County Parks and Recreation will join many other agencies nationwide in the celebration of Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).

From providing places to play, exercise, get fit and stay healthy, to recreational programs and special events, the Martin County Parks and Recreation Department provides essential services to the community that promote health and wellness, foster new relationships and forge a connection with nature while improving the quality of life of both residents and visitors. "The staff at Martin County Parks and Recreation works diligently, not only during Park and Recreation Month, but all year long, to enhance the quality of life and well-being of our community members through facilities, programs, services and events that meet our residents' needs in recreation, fitness and leisure," said Mark Lynch, Parks and Recreation Deputy Director.

To celebrate Park and Recreation Month, the Martin County Parks and Recreation Department has organized a very exciting "We are Parks and Recreation Challenge."

The challenge encourages all residents and visitors to explore different Martin County parks and stay active, all while following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's social distancing guidelines. The first ten completed challenge entries will win fantastic prices. A downloadable version of the challenge card with more information about the rules is now available at
