July is Park and Recreation Month and it’s time get OUT and visit one of Henrico’s many parks! We’re challenging you to take one indoor activity outdoors everyday in July. Nearly three in 10 U.S. adults do not spend time outdoors on a daily basis. Break the trend! Get Out and Stay Out and enjoy your daily dose of fresh air this July in honor of Park and Recreation Month! Check us “OUT” on our July Activity calendar and on Facebook!
