DIRECTOR PARKS AND RECREATION
CITY OF BUENA VISTA, VA
The City of Buena Vista is seeking a Director of Parks and Recreation for its Glen Maury Park. This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated and creative professional to promote and be a steward of the day to day outdoor experience of a 352 acre park fronting along the Maury River in Buena Vista Virginia. This year the park was host to 23 music venues, including festivals from Blue Grass to Beach Music. Camping is available at 52 designated sites and Rally Field accommodates over 250 camping units for our larger festival events. The facility of Glen Maury Park is designed to host large festivals. It also has available several shelters and pavilions that can host a diverse range of family and group outings.
The outdoor experience the Buena Vista region provides is paramount to the Glen Maury Park as the recreation hub for this area. Buena Vista’s close proximity and designations as Blue Ridge Parkway and Appalachian Trail communities adds to the quality of life and outdoor experience opportunities for our park and City. Other park amenities that support adult and youth athletics are the Laurel Park youth ball field complex, Buddy Secrist field and Camden Field. All of these athletic facilities offer lighting, concessions and rest rooms. These facilities are available to a wide array of users including Rockbridge Area Recreation Association that provides youth sports programs for Rockbridge County and the Cities of Buena Vista and Lexington.
