July Is Parks Makes Life Better Month

June 20, 2023 ·

BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills is spreading the word that July is Parks Make Life Better! Month that recognizes the importance of access to the city’s 15 parks, and recreation offerings in Beverly Hills, and open spaces and community centers that enrich our lives and are part of what makes the small town character this City so special.

“Parks and recreation help us stay healthy and well – mind, body and soul.  They give us a space to workout, stay active and fit.  They provide a much needed sanctuary in the urban environment to keep us connected to each other and the great outdoors, and to bring value to our lives in a variety of ways including being a cherished summertime community gathering space,” states the city of Beverly Hills on its website.
