Open just a few months, the Elizabethtown Sports Park already has scooped up an award.
The park received facility of the year in class 1 of the Kentucky Parks & Recreation Society Awards. Director Seth Breitner presented the award to Elizabethtown City Council Monday evening.
Breitner said the awards are divided into two classes, class 1 and class 2, with class 1 representing larger facilities. The award is given to indoor or outdoor facilities enhancing quality of life and recreational opportunities in a community, Breitner said.
“It’s an honor for us with the park (being) as new as it is to win an award as prestigious as this,” Breitner said.
Mayor Tim Walker said the accolades for the park have not stopped.
“It’s just amazing the level of national attention we’re still getting,” he said. “I think we’re just scratching the surface.”
