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 host a special signature event: The Parks and Recreation Champion Awards.
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.
Now in its fourth run, this program celebrates the selfless efforts of those 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 this program may be individuals, community leaders or representatives who meet the following criteria:
On top of the presentation of awards, we're hosting live music, a birds of prey demo, an animal touch table, appetizers and drinks, and a robust silent auction to support the San Diego County Parks Society - an organization that provides financial support for park events and maintenance projects.
We encourage you to say “thank you” to a local hero through your nomination of the next Parks and Recreation Champion.

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.
