The Woodstock Parks and Recreation Department has earned re-accreditation after meeting or exceeding 151 national standards covering operations, management and service to the community, city officials announced.

Woodstock’s is one of only 166 parks and recreation agencies in the U.S. and 11 in Georgia so designated by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies and the National Recreation and Park Association, officials said.

Parks and Recreation Director Preston Pooser represented the city as he accepted the re-accreditation at the annual NRPA Best of the Best awards ceremony recently in Indianapolis.

“Earning and maintaining CAPRA Accreditation requires a city-wide effort from all departments,” Pooser said. “I am very appreciative of the help and support from our mayor and City Council, Jeff Moon our city manager, and all of our city department heads who assisted us through this process.”
