Pictures Worth a Thousand Words
The winners of the first “Show Me City” Parks Photo Contest have been selected: Cindy Cheng won first place, Jose Salas won second place and Alicia Blum won for the “Most Popular” Facebook photo.
“A lot of pictures submitted were scenic and showed the beauty of our parks,” said Recreation Specialist Lauren McKinnis.
The community competition was designed to highlight the year-round beauty and fun that can be found in the City’s 22 beautiful parks, in the new Recreation and Tennis Center at 2701 Cypress Point Dr. and on scenic nature trails around the area. The competition began in April and ran through Aug. 31.
“I believe our winners, all of whom are residents, were out enjoying our parks with their pets or family and friends and saw the perfect photo opportunity,” McKinnis said.
