Roseville residents can express their appreciation for Mahany Park by voting for it as “America’s Favorite Park.”

The second annual contest is sponsored by Coca Cola. Last year, Bear Head Lake State Park won a $100,000 grant. This year, the soda company will honor three top parks with $100,000, $50,000 and $25,000 grants.

Vote as many times as you want until Tuesday, Sept. 6. Winners will be announced in mid-September.

Mahany Park is a 225-acre public park located at the corner of Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard, and includes the Roseville Sports Center, swimming pools, athletic fields, picnic areas, batting cages and open space. An estimated 532,000 people visit the park and its facilities each year.
