One of the greatest aspects of living in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is that it’s filled with so many wonderful parks.
Everywhere you turn in Pennsylvania you can see the beauty of our public parks, from Fairmount Park in Philadelphia to the Pinchot Forest in the Poconos — these parks represent how deeply embedded the environment is in the souls of Pennsylvanians.
These divine creations that have blessed the Pennsylvania landscape would not be what they are without the stewards who have dedicated their careers to protecting these parks.
Park rangers and all of the people who work to protect and keep these areas clean deserve a “Thank You!” from everyone across the state.
July 19 was Park and Recreation Professionals Day and I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for preserving the 300,000 acres of state forest.
You protect one of Pennsylvania’s greatest assets, our natural wealth.
So, while everyone is out enjoying the great summer weather at these wonderful locations, remember to thank the people who work to keep these parks safe.
These people are the gatekeepers to these great escapes and deserve recognition for their hard work.
