Parks & Recreation

My goal as the Recreation Director of Orange City is to provide our citizens with a wide range of activities.  The type of activities that we are offer will hopefully be activities that can connect people in the community, as well as create life long interest in these activities.  We want to create beautiful parks, and high quality programming that can benefit not only our community,  but to people new to the area or that are from the surrounding area.
