Creative Ideas

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, events are being cancelled, parks are closing playgrounds, and social distancing is happening. We, in the parks and recreation industry have to get creative!

IPRA is here to help! We encourage our members to submit and share their departments creative ideas on virtual programming and events, keeping active while social distancing, etc. We will use this page as a resource and upload submissions, so we can keep our members creating new and exciting ways park goers can safely have fun and stay active, while following CDC guidelines.
