City Receives State Arts and Humanities Award for Urban Center


City Recreation Manager Chris Patterson today announced that the Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) has awarded to the city its 2009 Class II Texas Arts and Humanities Award. The award specifically recognizes the Brownsville Parks and Recreation Department’s Urban Center at Gonzalez Park.

Winning the award qualifies the Urban Center for nomination for the National Parks and Recreation Association (NRPA) Southwest Region Arts and Humanities Award.

“This award honors those departments with outstanding arts and humanities programs,” says Paterson. He and recreation supervisor Hawk Scott will go to Austin to accept the award on February 27.

For more information on the award and on the Urban Center, contact Patterson at (956) 455-7729.

Thanks Charlie Cabler for supporting Patterson and his people. It's great to see that our city has a place that is unlike any other in the State. Thanks Melissa for covering such a great thing for our community. It's good to see that your site is not all negative like all of the other ones.
