[ACTIVE] Allen Parks and Recreation Named National Finalist for Gold Medal

The City of Allen’s Parks and Recreation Department has been named one of four national finalists for the National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management in the Class III (population 50,001 to 100,000) category. Other finalists in Allen’s class include Kettering (OH) Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts, Roswell (GA) Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs and the Waukegan (IL) Park District. The overall winner of the award will be announced in October at the 2013 Congress and Exposition in Houston.

Founded in 1965, the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA) in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Gold Medal Awards program honors communities in the U.S. that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program and professional development.
