Park and recreation agencies across the country will be creating boo-tiful haunted houses, trails and hikes this month. Along with the parties, carnivals and fall festivals you'll be filling goodie bags with tricks and treats. While I'm no party pooper, I do believe that park and recreation agencies are an important part of every community's health and wellness team. This being said, instead of filling Halloween bags with sugary treats, consider these unique giveaways to enhance this year's event.
