Portland Parks & Recreation has received the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management from the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration and the National Recreation & Park Association.
"This shows how much Portlanders have invested in our parks over the history of the city," said a jubilant Portland Parks Commissioner Nick Fish. "The award-winning park system we have today is because of the strong legacy of leadership and public support. This national recognition is a tribute to the hard work of Portland Parks & Recreation employees, our partners, and dedicated volunteers."
