The city of Surprise Community and Recreation Services Department will be renamed Parks and Recreation effective July 1. Sports, camps, classes and parks are all managed by this department – so the name has been changed to better fit what they do. 

July 1 also marks the start of Parks and Recreation Month in Surprise. Mayor Skip Hall issued the proclamation at the June 18 Regular City Council Meeting, joining an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association.

You can help celebrate the vital and powerful role local parks and recreation play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts by taking advantage of the amazing opportunities we have in Surprise! 

Get out and play at one of our beautiful city parks, attend our 4th of July spectacular, or get involved in a city class or sports program. Let us know how you are celebrating by capturing your experiences and posting them to social with #GameOnJuly #SurpriseAZ
