Summer is here, which means it’s time to get your play on!

For Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the City of Yuma is celebrating all the ways parks and recreation can transform our daily lives. 

The City of Yuma Parks and Recreation department is hosting a photo contest, asking people to “Show us how you get your #PlayOnYuma.”  Residents are encouraged to share their photos and stories via social media.  Whether it's swimming laps at a city pool, shooting a round of golf at Desert Hills Golf Course, or heading out for a day of fun at one of the local parks and recreation facilities...

Entries can be submitted via the hashtag #PlayOnYuma on social media.  Entries can also be submitted by emailing them to parksandrec@yumaaz.gov.

 So head on out, have some fun, and how us how you get your #PlayOnYuma

Summers are hot in Yuma but one of the very coolest places you can be is Lutes Casino for the Lutes Summer Jazz Series, featuring the Yuma Jazz Company Quintet and some captivating guest performers.  Also featured will be the venerable restaurant itself.  This much-loved historic establishment has great food, friendly service, and a collection of memorabilia (artwork? artifacts?) that has to be seen to be believed! It all adds up for some exciting and memorable evenings.  

Featured artist: the YJC Quintet
