Parks & Rec celebrates Women’s History Month with a story map illustrating important women.

Many Parks & Rec sites are named in honor of women who helped shape their communities. From historical figures to hard-working volunteers, these women made a difference.

Through their vision, hard work, courage, and determination, these upstanding citizens:

  • Broke barriers of gender and color.
  • Volunteered countless hours and resources to benefit others.
  • Fought for better conditions in their communities.
  • Donated time—or land—to create recreational opportunities for others
