3 new awards for NVRPA
The judges have tallied their scores and the awards are in. At the 2011 Virgina Recreation and Park Society Conference in Norfolk this week, the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority came away with three top awards.
The awards were won for our renovations that resulted in creating Volcano Island Waterpark at Algonkian. This waterpark features the only semi-functional volcano in Northern Virginia, and has attracted many more park users than ever before.
We also received recognition of a great promotional flyer made for Atlantis Waterpark at Bull Run Regional Park.
And finally our 2010 Annual Report that doubled as a 2011 calendar won the gold.
It is a great honor to work for such a great organization and to have such an innovative and motivated team to work with.
