City of Palmdale Wins CPRS Award of Excellence for Palettes in the Park Program

The City of Palmdale was presented with a Marketing & Communications Award of Excellence from the California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS) at its annual conference held March 8 through 11 in Sacramento. 

The award was given in recognition of the City’s Palettes in the Park program, a four-day workshop held in Sept. 2021 at Marie Kerr Park that offered children in the community the opportunity to create and exhibit their art using acrylic paint, brushes and canvases which were provided by the City. Some of the finished art pieces were featured in the City’s Kaleidoscope Art & Music Festival, which was held on Saturday, Oct. 9 at the Palmdale Amphitheater

“Congratulations to our Parks and Recreation staff for coming up with an innovative new program that utilized one of our parks in a way that isn’t traditional when we think of park space,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “Winning this award also showcases to other agencies throughout California what Palmdale is doing to raise the bar in providing quality programming for our residents.”

For more information, please call 661/267-5611.
