Parks Make Life Better Thursday

Welcome to Parks Make Life Better Thursday! The California Parks and Recreation Society has found that parks benefit communities by providing:

  • Access to the serenity and inspiration of nature
  • Outdoor space to play and exercise
  • Facilities for self-directed and organized recreation
  • Positive alternatives for youth which help lower crime and mischief
  • Activities that facilitate social connections, human development, therapy, the arts and lifelong learning

Parks are such an important part of our community in Campbell so we need a whole day each week dedicated to celebrating them!
