City Of Burbank Seeking Nominees To Burbank Athletic Federation Walk Of Fame


The City of Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Department is seeking nominees for induction into the Burbank Athletics Federation Walk of Fame. The Walk of Fame was established to acknowledge the contributions of athletes, coaches, volunteers and staff members who have achieved high standards and shown dedication and commitment to the Department.
In recognizing the value of sports and athletic activities within the community, the tribute highlights individuals who, in their roles as participants, volunteers or professional staff, have furthered the excellence of the City’s organized sports programs. Inductees are permanently honored with their names engraved on individual bricks that adorn a walkway behind diamond number two at Izay Park. Complete with inscriptions, the walk has room for many more future honorees. The Department will honor inductees at a ceremony that will be held in October of 2011.
The Criteria Committee will consider those individuals who began their involvement with City of Burbank programs in 1985 or earlier, although they could still be involved more recently. To nominate a deserving man or woman to be considered for inclusion into the Walk of Fame, an individual needs to fill out an application completely, including accurate supporting information and submit it by April 22, 2011. Applications are available in the Burbank Sports Office located in Olive Recreation Center, 1111 West Olive Avenue. Applications can also be found on line at under the Park, Recreation and Community Services Department Sports section. For additional information you can also call the Burbank Sports Office at (818) 238-5330.
