Parks and Rec

Nominate a Parks and Recreation Champion

Parks do a lot for us – but do you know anyone who does a lot for parks? Nominate a dedicated volunteer who is a champion in parks education, service and stewardship. The County will honor the best of the best at the fourth annual Parks Champion and Recreation Awards this summer.

To qualify, nominees must be residents who volunteer their time toward improving parks and recreation in San Diego County. They are not restricted to parks within the County’s park system; all 18 cities within the county are included.

The nomination period is open now through June 7. A panel of judges will review submissions. And the winners will be recognized at a ceremony in July in celebration of National Parks and Recreation Month.
