The East Region Texas Recreation and Parks Society honored a League City program at a Jan. 18 event.
The society gave League City the Lone Star Programming Award for its Paddle the Trail event at Heritage Park.
League City partnered with the American Hiking Society June 3, 2017, to offer a National Trails Day event at Heritage Park.
The event introduced watercraft and the Clear Creek Paddle Trail to residents, city staff said.
Heritage Park offers canoe, kayak, paddle boarding and pedal boat launching.
League City worked with the Clear Creek Paddle Association to provide expert kayak and canoe volunteers to the event. More than 250 people attended, most of them coming as families, officials said.
