Name and title
Joe Piccinini, Superintendent of Parks Safety
Number of years with Jackson County Parks + Rec
A great example of how parks are important to a community was during the COVID outbreak when people couldn’t go to work and were at home, they could still get out and enjoy our parks system. We saw a huge increase in the use of our trails and an increase in the use of the green space throughout our parks last year. The past year with the cancelation of so many events and entertainment venues the parks became important to people and was an outlet for individuals to get out and improve their health and wellbeing.
