National Park and Recreation Month

Our park and recreation story


This July, join Davenport Parks and Recreation for National Park and Recreation Month, as we celebrate how Davenport is stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation. A variety of activities are planned for residents of all ages and abilities — including virtual activities via social media platforms, three Party in the Park events (July 8, 22 and 29), and Youth Fest on July 14 at Fejervary Learning Center.

Celebrate with daily virtual activities on our social media platform for the whole family including weekly themed selfie challenges, a virtual scavenger hunt, and Throwback Thursdays where we explore the history of Davenport Parks. At Party in the Park and Youth Fest, participants can share their own park and recreation stories with staff. 

Park and Recreation Month is an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). NRPA encourages people that support parks and recreation to share their park and recreation story, as well as why their local park and recreation professionals are important to them, with the hashtag #OurParkAndRecStory.
