Rec and Park making its own headlines

Keep an eye out for a new Recreation and Park Department newsletter.

The first-time “Parks Post” written by the department about community events, issues and so forth should be available within coming months.

The staff just recently got their first employee e-mail newsletter, but since only about 35 percent of the staff is accessible online, not everyone has received it, said Rec and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg.

The department is responsible for more than 200 parks in The City, and Ginsburg said he’s visited almost 100 of them as he approaches his 100th day on the job, but you can already read about that in his blog.
