Be a Part of the #FontanaParkRecMonth Celebration! 

This July, join the City of Fontana for Park and Recreation Month, as we celebrate how Fontana is stronger, more vibrant, and more resilient because of parks and recreation.

The City of Fontana is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), by inviting our community to share their experiences, memories, and stories about what parks and recreation mean to them. With everything from 46 parks, 56 playgrounds, classes in all interests such as the arts, aquatics, and sports, not to mention our famed family-fun events, there are plenty of ways that you can celebrate with us! 

Share your Park and Recreation experience with us! Be sure to post pictures or videos playing at a local park or participating in one of this month's fun activities on social media with the hashtag #FontanaParkRecMonth to be featured on the City’s social media and win some prizes.
