centers and what he and his team do to bring more

Q.What do you do as director of the Recreation and
Parks Department?
A.I work in partnership with the community, staff,
volunteers, elected boards and other stakeholders
in assisting the community in providing exceptional
recreation and parks lifestyle experiences at our facilities,
programs, services and events. We strive to stay in line
with our core values, mission, vision and purpose, using
our best practices as a nationally accredited recreation
and parks agency.
Q.What is the purpose of the recreation centers?
A.Our goal is to offer a safe, maintained and welcoming
environment that will help enhance and enrich the lives
of our residents.
Q.What sort of thought process goes into the
placement of recreation centers around The Villages?
A.There is a tremendous amount of planning, designing
and coordination regarding placement and location of
recreational amenities in our community. This includes,
but is not limited to, access, availability of property and
location in relation to other amenities and neighborhoods
to complement our overall master plan.
Q.What are some specialized activities or amenities
that Villagers can find at recreation centers?
A.Some of these areas include air gun ranges, lawn
bowling and croquet, archery, darts, indoor shuffleboard,
springs, trails and outdoor exercise equipment. We
encourage our residents to visit all of the recreation centers
and areas to explore and discover what they have to offer.

Q.Who and/or what determines the layout and
amenities of a recreation center?
A.Since we are a master planned community, the
features and amenities are designed on the front end of
the development of the community. Unlike any other
development, these recreational features are placed to
complement the future existing neighborhoods and areas
so our residents get to see up front our commitment to
providing a community centered around recreation.
Q.Do you have a personal "favorite" recreation
center or area you enjoy spending time at?
A.Of course, the Rohan Recreation Center. They are all
so unique - I love them all because of these qualities.
Q.Is there anything else you would like to get out
there about the recreation centers and areas around
The Villages?
A.The recreation centers and areas are for our residents'
use and enjoyment. We love being a part of assisting
them in getting the most out of life. We love hearing how
we can improve and offer more programs - input is
always welcome.
