Roswell’s parks department is a finalist for the seventh year in a row for a gold medal award for excellence in parks and recreation management.

The Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department was named a finalist in the Class III category, for cities with populations of 75,001 to 150,000, by the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association.

Roswell is competing for the gold against the park departments of three other communities – Arlington Heights and Evanston, Ill., both suburbs of Chicago, and Mountain View, Calif., near San Francisco. The winner will be announced during the 2017 NRPA Annual Conference in New Orleans, Sept. 26-28.
