Downtown Bridges & Trails Project Recognized for Excellencein News & Press
The California Park and Recreation Society’s annual awards program seeks to recognize the outstanding achievements by agencies in the areas of creating community through programming, park planning, facility design, and marketing and communications. The City of Roseville has been awarded in 2 categories pertaining to the Downtown Bridges project:
Park Planning Category
This category recognizes excellence in design of completed park facilities intended for public use. The project may be either new construction or a rehabilitation project that demonstrates high standards of planning, design, community involvement, operation and maintenance, quality of aesthetics, usability, accessibility and versatility.
The Downtown Roseville Bridges project is the culmination of a plan to connect people with public spaces, bring more activity to the Downtown, attract businesses and create an interwoven series of spaces that are valued by the community. The project includes, 1) refurbishment of an historic bridge connecting bike trails from the east to the downtown; 2) a pedestrian bridge, wide enough to be an iconic venue for special events, 3) a new bridge to replace one damaged during a storm connecting the Downtown Library with the park.
Marketing & Communications Category
Awarded for the Marketing Campaign for the Celebrate Downtown event commemorating the opening of three new bridges connecting one of the city's oldest and most popular parks to the downtown corridor over Dry Creek. The celebration combined a number of planned events into one day-long family-oriented experience.
This category recognizes excellence in print, audio visual or electronic communications that (1) externally promote the agency’s public parks, facilities, recreation or leisure services programs and have successfully demonstrated an increased level of public awareness or (2) are used to enhance the agency’s internal communications to staff, policy makers, or current program participants.
