City received MRPA Tommy Johnson Award
Every year, the Minnesota Parks and Recreation Association (MRPA) recognizes outstanding parks and recreation professionals during its annual meeting and awards luncheon.
On Jan. 11, the City of St. Louis Park was presented with the Tommy Johnson Award for the Recreation Outdoor Center (ROC) project. The award is given once a year to a community that most exemplifies innovation, futuristic, revolutionary and/or creative ideas and initiatives that help establish future trends, philosophical change, sharing of new resources and new exciting concepts in recreation facilities or programming. The award is voted on by other recreation professionals within the industry.
The ROC also received an MRPA Award of Excellence in 2017 in the park and facility category.
