Show your love at your local parks and recreation


July is National Parks and Recreation month, and for our local Parks and Rec departments, it's a chance to show your love!

This year's national theme is "I love my Park and Recreation," so Greensboro Mayor Robbie Perkins is inviting the public to enjoy dozens of free events throughout the month of July, including free outdoor concerts, Summer Night Lights programs for teens and even a citywide scavenger hunt.

In the scavenger hunt, people of all ages are invited to visit ten diverse locations throughout the city and have their picture taken at each site. A scavenger hunt entry form with details on the locations is available online at When complete, you can e-mail the entry form and photos from the ten locations to to be entered into a drawing for goodie baskets from Greensboro Parks & Recreation. All entries must be received no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31.

For more information about events happening through the month of July visit Greensboro Parks and Recreation online.

The Winston-Salem Recreation and Parks department is offering a fourth of July special July 4-7 — if you wear red, white and /or blue you get free admission!
