July is Parks & Recreation Month--Get inspired here!

Surely (and don't call me Shirley!),  in July you will make time for some recreation in a local (or not so local) park and do your part in recognition of National Parks and Recreation Month.  Chatt State adjoins one of the prettiest parks anywhere in the south--The Tennessee Riverpark--a free, multi-use path that is open year 'round. There are terrific places for picnics, birdwatching, playgrounding, reading, cycling, walking, fishing, boating, AND studying!

Inside the library, you will see our current book display that celebrates July as National Parks and Recreation Month.  A selection of beautiful books will inspire you to head out into the great beyond for a few days in the mountains, at the beach, in the forests, and amid cities, towns, deserts, and plains.

And on the library's website you will find our guide--ROCK YOUR PARK!--to help you find just the right park for you.

We hope your summer includes time with friends and family celebrating the natural beauty that our country has preserved in its state and national parks, seashores, and recreation areas.

Take a minute to watch Outdoor Chattanooga's VIDEO that includes scenes from our area, then take your lunch and head out our back door for some welcome downtime.
