Public Parks
As Spring begins to wend its way towards us, we are happy to have a program focused on  wonderful outdoor spaces. Chris Gensic and Dan Mahon will discuss public parks and trails in the City and Albemarle County.

He is also the primary planner for the department, dealing with updating park master plans and developing the larger park network according to the desires of the public and City Council. Chris is also involved in urban forestry and wildlife planning, invasives management, parkland acquisition, volunteer coordination, safe routes to schools, grant writing and grant project management.
