A Reminder to Make Time for Play
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Parks & Rec Business (PRB) magazine published a story that details how Cordova Recreation & Park District used conscientious creativity to turn obstacles into opportunity while designing Hillside Park.
The article by Dalton LaVoie demonstrates CRPD’s commitment to their mission. “Regardless of financial or environmental challenges, kids and communities need places that inspire us, challenge us, connect us to our environment, and remind us to make time for play,” LaVoie writes.

A Trifecta of Awards for Heron Landing Community Park
A few weeks ago, Cordova Recreation & Park District added yet another achievement to its repertoire. CRPD received the Innovative Program of the Year award for the “Heron Landing Community Park” project from the California Special Districts Association (CSDA), marking CRPD’s third award for Heron Landing Community Park in 2018.
CSDA’s recognition of Heron Landing Community Park greatly acknowledges both the park’s beneficial impact on the community and demonstration of a 21st century ethic of sustainability, technology and opportunity. In addition, this award honors CRPD’s quality of service and responsiveness to a growing community.
Heron Landing Community Park has received three distinguished awards from professional associations, including the California Parks and Recreation Society, District 2 and the California Association of Recreation and Park Districts, all before the park’s first birthday. Plus, Heron Landing Community Park continues to be praised by community members. Resident Google postings on the park give it a score of 4.8 out of 5.0 and the park maintains a 5-star review on Yelp.
