We believe in the power of recreation and parks, and we want Alberta to know it! Our goal is for Albertans to recognize June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) and to celebrate by getting outdoors and active. Our province has a strong foundation of parks and recreation facilities and programs, and June is the time to take advantage of all the benefits they bring to our communities.
Our long-term vision is to make JRPM a household name, so that when June rolls around, Albertans are eager to spend the month (and beyond) enjoying all the recreation activities and parks in their communities!

How can I get involved?
JRPM is all about helping people get outside and explore recreation with their family, friends, school, community, and more!
Does this sound like something you could get behind? We encourage individuals, families, municipalities, organizations, businesses, and schools to become JRPM ambassadors.
As an ambassador you receive:
- Access to the JRPM toolkit which consists of: logos, social media templates, activity suggestions, printable resources, proclamations, and more
- Information & resources to promote JRPM
- The opportunity to share your local events in our newsletters & on our website
You can promote JRPM through already-established events and programs in your community or use the toolkit to support your ideas.
