ROSWELL, Ga. — The Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department has received two national recognitions from the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

Roswell was selected as a 2012 NRPA Gold Medal Award finalist. This is the second year Roswell was named as a gold medal finalist in the category of cities with a population of 50,001 to 100,000. The Gold Medal Award honors agencies that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management and service to the community.

Roswell was also acknowledged for its 10-year re-accreditation. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) recognizes agencies for excellence in operation and service. To become CAPRA certified, an agency must complete an evaluation of 142 standards. CAPRA accreditation is a five-year cycle that includes three phases: development of the agency self-assessment report, the on-site visitation and the commission's review and decision.

"Either of these two honors would be great for any department to achieve. But for our recreation and parks department to achieve both of these high honors in the same year speaks volumes to the dedication of each and every staff member," said Councilman Jerry Orlans, the City Council liaison for the Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department. "The city of Roswell has always said our department was one of the best in the country, and this just proves that point."
