It is often a struggle to balancing all of our responsibilities with the importance of taking time to keep healthy. Recreation is extremely important to health and well-being and should be on the “must do” rather than the “get around to it” list.
According to research from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), health care costs are the largest single expenditure in the United States. Numerous studies substantiate the correlation between active involvement in recreational activities and increased health benefits. It may be that a healthy dose of art, dance or swimming should be shelved right next to the other prevention products found at your local pharmacy.
Aquatic facilities, community recreation and senior centers are located conveniently throughout Montgomery County to provide easier access to programs and activities. The Spring Recreation and Leisure Guide, which is available on line at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/rec has hundreds of programs and activities for all ages, abilities and interests.
