July is Parks Make Life Better! Month - #MyGlendaleParks Selfie Campaign

Glendale, CA - The City of Glendale joins cities across California in celebrating July is Parks Make Life Better! Month to promote the value of parks and recreation programs in enhancing the quality of life. The Community Services & Parks Department invites people of all ages to explore the City’s many parks, trails, historic homes, variety of classes, programs, amenities, and special events.  In the summer, the community can stay cool in the heat by visiting the Pacific Park Pool, one of the wading pools or splash pads in our parks, or visit any of the four community centers; parents can enroll their children in day camps for a fun and socially rewarding experience; people of all ages can participate in sports, fitness, and wellness classes that promote a healthier, active lifestyle; and, families can bond by having a picnic in the great outdoors while enjoying a concert in the park, marvel at the hundreds of classic cars on display at the annual Cruise Night event, or enjoy a camp fire program in the park.

In recognition of July is Parks Make Life Better! Month, the Community Services & Parks Department is inviting and encouraging those who live, work, and play in Glendale to visit our parks and special events, capture their visit with a selfie, and share it on social media for a chance to enter a prize drawing for a $50 gift card to a local restaurant/store as part of the #MyGlendaleParks Selfie Campaign.  Eight (8) winners will be selected.  Participants who meet additional requirements will be also be entered into a separate Bonus Drawing for a chance to win a $100 gift card to a local restaurant/store. One (1) winner will be selected from the Bonus Drawing.

Community Services & Parks thanks campaign sponsors, Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation, and Glendale Tech Week.
