July is Parks and Recreation month, and in the spirit of environmental stewardship and promoting healthy, active lifestyles, the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is proud to celebrate with a special signature event: The Parks and Recreation Champion Awards.
View highlights from the 2016 Park Champion Awards event.
Recipients of Parks and Recreation Champion Awards are people who have made a difference in local parks, preserves and community programs, throughout the County of San Diego. This is an opportunity to celebrate the selfless efforts of individuals who strive to bring positive change to the world around them. Viewing their successes prompts others to take action, for the benefit of all.
Candidates for the annual Parks and Recreation Champion Awards program may be individuals, community leaders or representatives who meet the following criteria:
San Diego County is home to a diverse network of parks, preserves, waterways, community centers, playgrounds and cultural and historic sites. This breadth of year-round amenities, bolstered by a consistently pleasant climate, attracts some 34 million tourists every year. Plans are always in play to enhance our region’s recreational offerings, and local parks and recreation teams rely on volunteers and park advocates to take those efforts to the next level.
Say “thank you” to a local hero through your nomination of the next Parks and Recreation Champion.
