Arlington Parks and Recreation recently earned two awards from the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS), just one example of how Arlington continues working to Champion Great Neighborhoods, which the City Council has identified as one of their key priorities. Great neighborhoods contribute to a higher quality of life and greater investment in our economy.

Arlington Parks and Recreation earned the prestigious Texas Gold Medal Award – Class I and the 2023 TRAPS Maintenance Achievement Award. The biggest achievement that a department can earn on the state level, the Texas Gold Medal Award honors park agencies for excellence in the field of recreation and park management for the past three years.

You can read more about the awards and much more in the latest edition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital format, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

Other updates include information on new playground equipment for eight Arlington parks and Arlington Water Utilities’ two awards from the 2023 Texas Water Conference.
