July is
National Parks and Recreation Month!

Every person has a story from a park.

Every park has a history made up of stories. 

This July, let's tell Ferguson's park and recreation story!


Playground Passport: July 1- 31

Are you just as obsessed with our playgrounds as we are?!? Stop by the Ferguson Community Center or print online throughout the month of July to pick up your “Playground Passport”. The passport will have all of Ferguson’s playgrounds listed for you to visit. Each playground will have a symbol that you will write on your passport. Once you have visited all 7 playgrounds, you will turn your passport into the Ferguson Community Center to be entered into a drawing for a prize!
