Tennessee State Parks looking for tales of park experiences
Tennessee State Parks celebrate Park and Recreation Month in July by inviting visitors to share their park experiences online.
The project is part of a variety of events tied to the month-long initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association.
Visitors can submit stories about unique experiences at the parks or expressions of what the parks mean to them here on the Tennessee State Parks website. Some will be shared on the site and on the parks’ social media pages throughout July.
“We always love to hear from our visitors about their experiences in Tennessee State Parks, and this is a special opportunity for them,” Jim Bryson, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, said.
“This is a chance for everyone to share their stories and hear from others. Our state parks have always played a special role, and they have become even more instrumental in people’s lives during the pandemic. This is a way for everyone to share what they have experienced,” he said.
The national observance of Park and Recreation Month began in 1985.
