July is Parks and Recreation Month
Windsor Recreation and Leisure Services is celebrating Parks and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), this July. We are celebrating how the Town of Windsor is stronger, more vibrant, and more resilient because of parks and recreation. Our recreation staff has planned a variety of activities to celebrate the month with special events and programs for residents of all ages and abilities such as Movie Nights, Block Parties, Float Nights at the Pool, Theatre Performances, Senior Kayaking, Sunset Yoga and more! Our local parks are often our first experience in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing. For more information, call 860-285-1990 or go to:
