Staff Report

For the fourth consecutive year, the city of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department has been named as a finalist for the 2014 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management by The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration.

Established in 1965, the program honors communities in the U.S. that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition. 

Agencies are judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve through the collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials.

Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department is a finalist in the Class III (Population 75,001–150,000) and joins three other finalists in the class that will compete for Grand Plaque Award honors this year: Allen Parks and Recreation, Texas; Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation, Indiana; and St. George Leisure Services Department, Utah. 

Award recipients will be announced in mid-October.
