PlayCore and GameTime team up to bring Good News: in Parks to park and rec agencies, public officials and citizen advocates nationwide

New Zoom show brings together top professionals in the field of parks and recreation to share relevant hot topics and best practices


Parks and recreation has never been more relevant and agencies are rising up to unprecedented challenges to provide innovative essential services. It is a critical time to lock arms and help our industry by sharing lessons learned. The current times are challenging but amidst the whirlwind are profound successes and champions that need to be heard.

To share the great work of our parks and recreation agencies, join PlayCore and GameTime for Good News: In Parks, a bi-monthly, interactive Zoom show where three leading park and recreation professionals will share best practices across relevant topics that inform their work and the resulting positive impacts on community well-being. Attendees are also eligible to receive a certificate of completion for 0.1 education units.

Hosts Jodie Adams, Parks Director Emeritus and past President NRPA Board of Directors; and Anne-Marie Spencer, PlayCore VP of Marketing and Master Trainer will take guests on an informative journey with robust discussions, audience polls, and special recognition segments. The show airs on Zoom starting July 9. Inaugural show guests include:

  • Dianne Hoover, Director of City of Bakersfield, CA Parks and Recreation Department, Past President NRPA BOD
  • Detrick Stanford, Chief Operating Officer, Clayton County GA, Past President NRPA BOD
  • Roslyn Johnson, Baltimore County's Director of Recreation and Parks, Baltimore, MD, Past NRPA BOD
