The Centerville-Washington Park District is a finalist for the 2018 National Gold Medal Award for excellence in park and recreation management.
The Gold Medal Awards program was founded in 1965 and honors communities in the U.S. who demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development and agency recognition.
The Centerville-Washington Park District is one of three other finalists in this category. Each park district is judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve.
“We enjoy a terrific park system and hundreds of activities because so many residents are involved. We couldn’t get this national recognition if it weren’t for the contributions of so many people and organizations in our community.” said Dan Monahan Park Board President.
All of the finalists this year will compete for the Grand Plaque Award honors this summer with the six Grand Plaque recipients being announced at the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana September 25-27, 2018.
