The $2.2 million Children's Wonderland park renovation has earned Vallejo high praise on the state level.
The Greater Vallejo Recreation and Park District work was recognized with an award for the best large district park renovation from the California Association of Recreation and Park Districts.
The association incorporates 65 recreation and park districts, and was established in 1958.
The organization commended the district's work to bring the 3-acre children's park, built in 1962, out of closure and up to modern standards.
In addition to updating the park's equipment, the enclosed fairy tale-themed attraction promotes maintenance efficiencies and water conservation, according to the association.
The district gathered funds from local, state and federal sources to enhance the park.
