Parks & Recreation


I am a strong advocate for parks and recreational facilities. I believe the wellbeing of a town is reflected in its parks. As our population grows and becomes more diversified our parks and recreation need to provide conveniently located environments for all of the citizens of Matthews to enjoy, regardless of their age, gender or physical limitations… and, of course, our pets as well. Our parks should always promote family and neighborhood socialization, provide facilities to accommodate popular activities as well as providing a venue for major events.
