The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA), in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), announced the City of Golden Parks and Recreation Department is a finalist for the second consecutive year for the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management.
The Gold Medal Award honors communities throughout the United States that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition. Each agency is judged on its ability to address the needs of those it serves through the collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials.
"The award of finalist recognizes the department as one of the top four national leaders in the provision of high quality parks and recreation and is quite an honor in and of itself," said Rod Tarullo, Director of Parks, Recreation and Golf.
Golden will compete for the Grand Award honor with three other finalists in the population category 25,000 and below. The winner will be announced during NRPA's Annual Congress and Exposition in Minneapolis, MN, October 25-29, 2010.
