District Recognition Awards




The NHRPD was recently recognized by California Association of Recreation and Park Districts with the Award of Distinction – OUTSTANDING INNOVATION for its Distance Learning Program. This unique program was developed during the COVID-19 pandemic from September 2020 – June 2021, as an education model that would help meet the needs of students and their families in the North Highlands community. In partnership with the Twin Rivers Unified School District, the Distance Learning Program provided an in-person program to the most impacted students in our community; homeless, foster youth, students of single low-income parents, and children of essential workers.

 The California Association of Recreation and Parks Districts Board of Directors selected the North Highlands Recreation and Park District from a list of many well-deserving applicants for this special award by recognizing the district’s outstanding excellence in this meaningful connection with the community. Congratulations NHRPD!
