Our community asset Bryant Park

This summer, Coca-Cola is rallying people to cast a “swing vote” for their favorite park candidate. The third-annual America Is Your Park campaign has begun. In 2010, Oleta River State Park was awarded a $25,000 donation through this initiative with the America’s State Parks Foundation. We’re hoping to get the award for our own Bryant  Park this year!  I just registered it on their site.

With the click of a button, park goers can change their communities by voting for their favorite park to win the title of “America’s Favorite Park.” Also at stake is a $100,000 recreation grant made possible by the Coca-Cola Live Positively initiative. “Parks are the anchors of our communities, but budget cuts have left them with little funds for restoration,”said Celeste Bottorff, Vice President, Living Well, Coca-Cola North America. “Through the Coca-Cola America Is Your Park campaign, a small action today can turn your favorite park into a better place to play tomorrow. So whether it’s an evening walk or a day of family fun, get out and play in the park – and vote to help your favorite win.”

Voting for “America’s Favorite Park” is easy! Park lovers can visit LivePositively to earn one vote per click for their favorite park. People can also earn 100 votes each time they check in on FourSquare from the park. More details on how to vote from the park are available on the website.

The three parks that receive the most votes by July 15, 2012 will be awarded recreation grants in the following amounts: First Place – $100,000; Second Place – $50,000; and Third Place – $25,000. In addition, a $15,000 grant will be awarded at random to another park that places in one of the remaining top 25 spots. These recreation grants are provided to help restore, rebuild or enhance activity areas in parks where people can play and be active.
