On behalf of the Board of Directors and team at the Cincinnati Parks Foundation, we wish to thank Wade Walcutt, recent Director of Cincinnati Parks for his vision and leadership over the last 2.5 years. Through Wade’s direction, we were able to accomplish many great projects - including the restoration of all five trails at French Park; a tranquil/meditative garden at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial; Ault Park Commons; accessibility at The Betty Gale Garden at the Krohn Conservatory and the exciting start of improvements at Burnet Woods (just to name a few). Wade was a dear friend to many of us, and we wish him and his family much happiness.
We welcome Kara Kish, Interim Director of Cincinnati Parks into her new role. We are excited to work alongside Kara and support her vision of our top-rated urban park system!
Cincinnati Parks Foundation continues to be inspired and thankful for all of YOU, our Friends of Parks. We are grateful for the many talented and generous individuals who work within Cincinnati Parks, those with passion so immense and sincere, it is inspirational.
Please take a moment to read through our October Friends of Parks eNews edition to learn more about what we’ve been up to lately. Wishing you and yours a sweet moment of pause throughout this fall season. Hope to see the colors change soon.
