Upcoming Activities to Enjoy at the Parks and Trails

August 7th is National Disc Golf Day !!!

Grab your discs and call up your friends!  Since the late 1960s, enthusiasts have been playing disc golf. The game became a formalized sport in the 1970s. In the beginning, targets were nothing more than tree trunks or wooden posts cemented into the ground. As the game progressed, courses replaced trees and posts with metal baskets with chains.  People of all ages and abilities play disc golf.  The sport offers a terrific low-impact, cardiovascular workout that can test both physical skill and mental determination.  So head to Boots Gaubatz Park with your friends or family and play a round of disk golf!

 

 

August 15th is National Relaxation Day !!!

National Relaxation Day is an important day as we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live. Taking time to recuperate and rejuvenate our tired minds and bodies may help prevent many health risks, too.  How do you like to relax?  How about relaxing in a beautiful FORHA park or trail?

  • Reading a book in the shade
  • Fishing with a friend
  • A picnic in the park with family
  • Walking or horseback riding along a trail

 

                                                                              August 25th  is National Park Service Founders Day!!!  

On this day in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed what is now called the Organic Act. It established the National Park Service. As part of the Department of Interior, the National Park Service protects 400 areas in each of the 50 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia totaling 84 million acres.    National Park Service Founders Day recognizes the superior conservation and preservation efforts of the National Parks System. Whether enjoying scenic trails, open spaces, watersheds or recreational areas, the National Parks Service provides a natural outdoor resource accessible to every American.

Fair Oaks Ranch may not have a National Park to be thankful for but we have several great community parks and trails to explore. Get out and enjoy your local parks and trails today!
