June is Recreation and Parks Month!
Celebrate June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) by getting active and playing outdoors!
St. Albert has an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities and throughout June, residents are encouraged to try new activities, and explore the parks and trails. Recreation promotes mental, physical, and social health benefits for people of all ages, and it helps bring communities closer together.
See below for fun ideas on how to get active outdoors this June and win some great prizes!
We're excited to join in on the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA) #CelebrateJRPM contest from June 1-30. This year is all about taking part in various daily activities with an exciting theme each week! The month of June is the perfect opportunity to get active and explore the many benefits of Recreation and Parks while enjoying time with family and friends!
To enter, participants must post a photo of them and/or their team completing the daily activity ON the day of the activity and include #CelebrateJRPM in their post:
- June 1 – 7: Outdoor Activities
- June 8 – 14: Rivers To Lakes
- June 15 – 21: Fun With Food
- June 22 – 30: Final Week of Fun
