Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Join Pitt County Community Schools and Recreation (PCCSR) in collaboration with the North Carolina Recreation and Park Association (NCRPA) and National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in celebration of Parks and Recreation Month.

Nearly three in 10 U.S. adults do not spend time outdoors on a daily basis. U.S. children spend 4.5 hours each day in front of a screen. Break the trend! Come take a photo at the Alice F. Keene Park or a Pitt County Schools’ Park for your daily dose of fresh air and physical activity this July in honor of Parks and Recreation Month! 

Take a photo at either the Alice F. Keene Park or any Pitt County Schools’ Park to be entered into a countywide photo contest. 

The contest winners will have their photos displayed on the PCCSR website and Facebook page. In addition, contest photos may be utilized in the Pitt County Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan and will be used to market for PCCSR programs and activities.
