Episode 14: We Rise Up for Parks and Recreation
Interview with John Davis, Lincoln County Parks and Recreation Director
There’s no better way to celebrate Park and Recreation Month than by highlighting the people who faithfully serve their communities all year long. In this podcast, we are excited to share with you insights from John Davis, Lincoln County Parks and Recreation Director about the parks and recreation field. John, a Lincolnton native, spent eight years doing youth educational recreational programming for the Burke County Cooperative Extension and joined Lincoln County in 2015. The City of Lincolnton and Lincoln County recently created an updated comprehensive parks and recreation master plan that exemplifies how parks and recreation professionals are rising up to promote health and well-being, protect the environment, and offer inclusive options for play by building a plan with the engagement of their community. By assisting with planning efforts like this, McGill is shaping communities together.
