Florida State Parks Get the Gold

It has been named number one for doing it twice. The Florida State Park System has been awarded the Gold Medal Award.

The Gold Medal Award honors Florida as the "nation's best state park service." Florida also received the award in 2001.

This year makes the Florida Park Service the only state agency in the nation to win the gold medal twice.

Lisa Leddy says, "I think it's rightly deserved. They have a beautiful state park system. The camping facilities are usually wonderful, the cabins that they have in a lot of the parks are great. The hiking trails, the biking trails are wonderful."
