April is Earth Month and Pasco County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources is inviting residents to nominate Pasco County to receive $20,000 in ‘Meet Me at the Park’ grant funding to improve a local park. Park supporters can vote each day for Pasco County at www.NRPA.org/BeInspired though April 30, 2017. Every resident who submits a nomination will be entered into a drawing to win a tablet enhanced for outdoor use!
Local parks are an essential part of our community and make Pasco County a better place to live by boosting our County’s health and well-being. They provide safe places to be active and to enjoy nature and they help preserve the environment while bringing families together.
“Pasco County residents are so passionate about their parks,” said Pasco County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Director Kelley Boree. “We see it every day – at the athletic fields, on the playgrounds, at the boat ramps and on the trails. Pasco County has a very diverse park system that should be celebrated and this campaign is a fun way for our community to show the rest of the nation how we feel about our parks. So take the ‘Meet Me at the Park’ challenge and vote for Pasco!”
