PRNS Honored with Three Awards of Excellence

The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Services was recognized with three awards of excellence by the California Parks and Recreation Society for three recent projects: Coyote Creek Trail Master Plan, Guadalupe River Trail Reach 6, and San José Family Camp. CPRS supports career development in the field of recreation and is an advocate for California’s park and recreation professionals. The Coyote Creek Trail Master Plan defines 4.1 miles of new development between Montague Expressway and Watson Park. The Guadalupe River Trail Reach 6 project was completed in April 2011, and extends the popular trail system by 0.5 mile to link the Washington and Greater Gardner Neighborhoods to the 250-acre Guadalupe River Park. San José Family Camp was recognized for their outstanding contribution to the community by providing health and wellness programming, while establishing Camp as a place for parents to educate their children in a natural environment, away from the urban life of cell phones, computers and televisions. Family Camp supports the “No-Kid Left Indoors Program” by providing an outdoor experience near the northern entrance to Yosemite National Park. More information on the trail awards can be found at: For questions, please contact Matt Cano, Deputy Director, Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services, at 535-3580.
