The City of Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Department recently received a 2019 Public Relations Excellence Award from the Florida Recreation and Park Association (FRPA) for the Cape Coral Fun-Mobile mobile recreation initiative. FRPA Public Relations Awards are presented annually to individuals and agencies that have significantly impacted the public’s awareness and recognition of public parks, recreation and leisure service programs through marketing and public relations.
Formerly a municipal van used to transport children that’s been converted into a “recreation center on wheels,” the Cape Coral Fun-Mobile has been offering organized activities for free to promote outdoor play at parks and events throughout Cape Coral since the spring of 2018. By bringing recreation and information to people where they are, instead of the other way around, the Fun-Mobile has been instrumental in helping to increase public awareness of Cape Coral Parks & Recreation and the universal benefits of parks both in and beyond the City of Cape Coral.
“We are extremely pleased to be honored with the Florida Recreation and Park Association’s 2019 Public Relations Award,” said Kerry Runyon, Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Director. “It solidifies our commitment to outstanding communications with our citizens through a variety of mediums, and is a terrific achievement to be recognized as one of the top agencies in the state of Florida.”
The award was officially presented on August 28 at the Florida Recreation and Park Association’s Annual Awards Ceremony in Orlando.
