The Elly Doyle Park Service Awards were established in 1988 and recognize Ellamae Doyle's many years of service and accomplishments as a member and chairman of the Park Authority Board. The County's park system expanded and thrived during her tenure with the addition of significant open space, construction of new recreational facilities and a commitment to preservation of natural and cultural resources in Fairfax County.
Anyone may submit an application. The awards are open to those who have made outstanding service contributions over the past year. A service contribution is the giving of time or expertise to the Fairfax County Park Authority for the advancement of recreational and/or educational opportunities or the protection of natural, cultural or historic resources in Fairfax County. Groups and individuals are eligible. An individual or organization may only receive one Elly Doyle Award. Recipients will be honored at a reception and ceremonies in November.
The 2019 Elly Doyle Park Service Awards will be presented on November 22, 2019.
