Buda proclaims Parks & Recreation Month

By Megan Wehring 

BUDA – The city of Buda is recognizing an integral part of the community: parks and recreation.

On July 19, the Buda City Council proclaimed July as Parks and Recreation Month, which coincides with other cities across the state and the nation approving similar proclamations. 

“Our parks and natural recreation areas ensure the ecological beauty of our community,” the proclamation stated, “and provide a place for children and adults to connect with nature and recreate outdoors.”

The council also acknowledged the achievements and continuous service of the Buda Parks and Recreation Department – which includes Greg Olmer, parks and recreation director, and Juan Mosqueda, parks supervisor.

As a separate proclamation, the Hays Communities Family branch of the Young Men’s Christian Association was recognized for its 15 years of service. The YMCA has promoted healthy living for the Buda community by providing programs and activities that promote mental and physical health and wellness for individuals and families, according to the proclamation. 

A 15th birthday party will be hosted at the YMCA, located at 465 Buda Sportsplex Drive, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 30.
