This Saturday Dallas Park and Recreation will host the 2nd Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. Approximately 400 volunteers are being recognized for their service. Twenty of those volunteers will receive the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. The Presidential Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups who have given 500 or more hours of service over the last year.  

Along with the ultimate honor of presidential recognition, recipients will receive a personalized certificate, an official pin and a congratulatory letter from the President of the United States. Thanks to all of our volunteers!

Just a reminder that it is now illegal to smoke at our City of Dallas parks and trails. This past November, the Dallas City Council approved a smoking ban on park property with some exceptions. The smoking ordinance took effect March 1.

“We encourage the community to join us in making our parks smoke free come March 1,” said Willis Winters, Dallas Park and Recreation Director. “This is a new ordinance approved by the City Council, so we are going to spend time educating residents about the new smoking ban.”
