Recreate!  Let's Get Out & Play!  Parks Make Life Better!

Parks Make Life Better! Month recognizes the importance of access to our fifteen parks, and awesome recreation offerings in Beverly Hills, and our open spaces and community centers that enrich our lives and are part of what makes the small town character in 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!
