The New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department has been honored by the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS) with the 2023 Texas Gold Medal Award for cities with a population between 50,0000 and 100,000. The award was announced Thursday, March 2, 2023, as part of the TRAPS annual conference, held this year in Frisco, Texas.

The Gold Medal Award honors Parks and Recreation departments that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management, and innovative approaches to delivering parks and recreation services with fiscally sound business practices.

“Our staff strives for continual improvement and pushes boundaries for excellence,” said New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Director Stacey Dicke. “We are always looking for ways to continue the tradition of exceeding citizen expectations by providing programs, places, and people that make life better.”

The TRAPS Gold Medal award celebrates all of the Parks and Recreation offerings in New Braunfels, which features over 700 acres of parkland including an 18-hole championship golf course, a 74,000-square foot recreation center, two historic cemeteries, and the famous Comal River Tube Chute. 

The New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department has previously been awarded to the Texas Gold Medal Award in 2010 and 2016. They also achieved accreditation from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) through their Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) in 2020.
