City Seal

Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission have proclaimed July as Recreation and Parks Month.

The declaration dovetails with recognition countrywide by the National Recreation and Park Association as well as the Florida Recreation and Park Association.

“Parks and recreation programs enhance our quality of life by contributing to healthy lifestyles, building community, creating economic development, and encouraging environmental stewardship,” reads the proclamation.  In addition, they “boost the economy, enhance property values, attract new business, increase tourism, and reduce crime."

Recreation helps build "family unity, strengthens neighborhood involvement, offers an opportunity for social interaction, enhances education, develops creativity, and promotes cultural diversity.”

Tiffany Pellicier, Chairperson of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and Roger McVeigh, Vice Chair, accepted the honor.
