Special events for National Parks and Recreation Month
In celebration of July’s designation as National Parks and Recreation Month, the Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department has put together a month of fun and exciting events for all ages.
Activities will focus on fitness, outdoor exploration, self-guided activities at local parks and trails, and staff-hosted events. Some of the major activities this year are:
Sixth Annual Ducky Derby
Saturday, July 8, 10 a.m.-noon
Sun Valley Aquatic Center, 801 S. Valley Parkway
Come out and enjoy this special event for all ages. Watch as participants race specially decorated ducks for various awards. There is a $3 entrance fee for person not entered in the race.

Fourth Annual Teddy Bear Picnic
Monday, July 10, 6-8 p.m.
Wayne Frady Park, 535 W. College Street
Bring the family, a picnic basket, a blanket, and everyone’s favorite bear to the park, formerly College Street Park. Admission to the aquatic park is included during the event. Those attending can gift a new bear to PediPlace. Lewisville Police Department will be available to perform car seat checks.
Geocaching at LLELA
Sunday, July 30
There’s a puzzle hiding on the hiking trails at Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area. Check out the Geocache Adventure at LLELA.org to see how you can get started. Geocaching is a worldwide game that feels a bit like a treasure hunt. Participants enter coordinates in a GPS receiver and use it to find a marked location, usually a point of geographical, historical, or scenic interest. Upon arriving at the coordinates, the geocacher searches the area for a hidden object or container.
Participants in all the National Parks and Recreation Month events are encouraged to share their experiences on social media by using #PlayOnJuly. Be sure and follow the Parks and Recreation Department on Facebook for daily posts on activities related to National Parks and Recreation Month and other news, events and information.

Herring Recreation Center, 191 Civic Circle; Memorial Park Recreation Center, 1950-B South Valley Parkway; Senior Activity Center, 1950-A South Valley Parkway; and Lewisville Public Library, 1197 W.
