June is Recreation and Parks Month
June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is a fun and exciting way to celebrate recreation, culture and parks and all of the activities we love to do solo or with our families, friends and neighbours! Red Deer offers an abundance of opportunities for everyone!
Get out there and enjoy your community’s numerous outdoor recreation options, or get inside and experience one of its many facilities and programs. It’s easy for you to get in or out this June!
