Headwaters Park Management Agreement

Last Thursday, the Parks Board of Commissioners approved a one year extension to the Management Agreement of Headwaters Park with the Headwaters Park Alliance.

The Alliance is a non-profit agency that leases the park from the City and provides maintenance and management of the park throughout the year.  Previous to this latest agreement, the agreements were 3 years in length.  Thursday, the agreement approved was for only one year.

This will provide the opportunity to examine the arrangement and evaluate the continuance, revision or termination of the arrangement.  It will be the first time in 10 years it will be examined.  This is not being done because of poor management or fiscal mismanagement.  City officials have repeatedly stated they are happy with the Headwater Park Alliance’s performance with the park.

Below are two interviews.  The first with Al Moll, Fort Wayne City Parks and Recreation Director and the second with Geoff Paddock, Headwaters Park Alliance Director.
