Facilities Management and Development Division
The Facilities Management Division is responsible for the administration of the Parks Master Plan. This division oversees and coordinates park system improvements and expansion in coordination with the General Services Department (GSD).The General Services Department assists the division with the implementation of Capital Improvement Plan and projects funded by the Parks and Open Space Ordinance. To more effectively and efficiently accomplish these tasks, the division maintains an internal Carpentry/Light Construction/Painting Shop, a Pool and Plumbing Shop, an Electrical and HVAC Shop, a Playground Inspection Shop, a Fencing Shop, and a Graffiti Abatement Shop.
The Park Administration section coordinates planning, design, construction, maintenance and events in HPARD’s most popular Signature parks, Hermann Park and Memorial Park. In addition, Park Administration works on projects as assigned by the Director to assist park groups and citizen advisory boards in achieving funding and planning goals. It also acts as liaison for citizens groups and assists them in the development of specific park master plans and projects. With diminishing budgets, HPARD has been able to leverage its resources by working in collaboration with other City, County and State agencies and private donor groups to continue improvement and renovation of the City’s Signature Parks.
