NWTRPA June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) Photo Contest

What is JRPM?

June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is an annual observance celebrated in Canada to

promote the importance of recreation and parks in enhancing the well-being and quality of life

for individuals and communities. It is a month-long campaign dedicated to raising awareness

about the benefits of participating in recreational activities, enjoying public parks, and engaging

in outdoor pursuits.

JRPM aims to highlight the vital role of recreation and parks in fostering physical and

mental health, community building, environmental conservation, and overall social well-being.

The campaign encourages people of all ages to get active, connect with nature, and take

advantage of the various recreational opportunities available in their communities.
