Park District General Manager Robert Doyle Awarded Prestigious Pugsley Medal

On September 26, 2018, Robert E. Doyle, East Bay Regional Park District’s General Manager, received the 2018 Honorable Cornelius Amory Pugsley Award medal. Selected by the American Academy of Park and Recreation Administration, the award honors champions of parks and conservation. It is the most prestigious award given for work toward the promotion and development of public parks, recreation, and conservation in the United States.

Doyle’s career with the Park District began as a park ranger. He moved up the ranks through Planning & Design, and eventually served as assistant general manager for Land Acquisition and Planning for 21 years. Both positions resulted in major improvements for EBRPD, including a first of its kind Regional Trails Master Plan, and the greatest expansion of park and trails in the District’s history. Doyle has led the District as general manager since 2010.
