Park and Recreation Month

Parks and Rec Month Graphic

Get in the Game with the City of Southlake this July for National Parks and Rec Month!

This year, it’s all about highlighting the fun, games and exciting offerings at your local parks and recreation centers. From providing special events to exciting sports leagues and everything in between, the City of Southlake has a wide variety of programs that are not only fun, they also bring the community together. National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and the City of Southlake are encouraging everyone to get out there and get in the game in their own way at their local parks and rec centers.
