Is there a Georgia State Park that holds fond memories for you and your family? Are you heading to a state park this summer for vacation? If so, being active could help that park win big in the America Is Your Park campaign. Afterall, the title of “America’s Favorite Park” and $100,000 are up for grabs!

For a second year, America Is Your Park is encouraging families to get active outdoors. People can vote to help their favorite park win a $100,000 recreation grant made possible by the Coca-Cola Live Positively initiative. You decide which park wins by voting online at, uploading photos and videos of your favorite park, and checking in via Facebook Places.

Think your favorite state park is too small to win? That wasn’t the case for last year’s winner: Bear Head Lake State Park in Minnesota. They received more than 1.6 million votes and beat out hundreds of other parks for the title of “America’s Favorite Park.” This was made possible by support from people like you who care about parks and spread the word, conducted voting drives and energized their online social networks. Right now, Georgia’s Little Ocmulgee, Florence Marina and Amicalola Falls state parks are already in the Top 10!

Please spread the word by posting a status update on Facebook about why you love Georgia’s State Parks or sending emails to your friends and family urging them to vote. Or simply get out in the parks this summer and check-in via Facebook Places.

America Is Your Park was developed in collaboration with the National Park Foundation, America’s State Parks, and the National Recreation and Park Association. In addition to the top park receiving a $100,000 recreation grant, Coca-Cola will also award a $50,000 grant and $25,000 grant to second- and third-place parks. These grants will help restore, rebuild or enhance recreation areas where people can play and be active.

Could your favorite State Park be crowned “America’s Favorite Park” this summer? It’s up to you – so get outdoors, play in the park and don’t forget to vote!
