June is Recreation & Parks Month

Each June, communities across Ontario celebrate June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM). JRPM is recognized by municipalities, community organizations, and schools as a way of promoting the benefits of being active and recognizing the contribution that recreation and parks make to quality of life.

Access to parks and recreation is a fundamental human need that helps foster personal health, strong communities, and social inclusion. JRPM celebrates Ontario's spectacular parks and recreation services and raises awareness for the role they play as a pathway to individual, community, and environmental well-being.

The Township of Brock will kick of June is Recreation and Parks month by offering free fitness classes during the first week of June! This is an opportunity for everyone to come and try the classes at no cost and no commitment. Additionally, the Township will be running a social media contest with the opportunity to win FREE Fitness classes for a YEAR and other prizes.

“The Township of Brock is a thriving centre for Recreation with so many opportunities for people of all ages. We are so fortunate to have Fitness Classes, Sports Organizations, Trails, Parks, Beaches and more packed into the towns and villages that form Brock” – Mayor Debbie Bath-Hadden
