FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — Freeport Park District’s Executive Director, Ron Schneider, has put a talented leadership team into place to guide the District through the Covid-19 pandemic and provide the highest quality parks and recreation services, according to the Freeport Park District. The two, new Superintendents bring nearly 50 years of experience to the community.
Last fall, Bruce Cubberley, a certified arborist, joined the Park District team as Superintendent of Parks & Natural Resources. Bruce brings over 30 years of experience and leads the Park District maintenance team which grooms and enhances Park facilities and the 800+ acres the Park District oversees.
Berin Jackson, formerly Recreation Supervisor, was appointed Superintendent of Recreation. Berin has nearly 13 years of experience at the District and directs Park District programs, special recreation, events, recreation facilities and collaborates with affiliate groups.
“We believe keeping our parks open through this difficult time is essential for our community. We’re fortunate to have a highly experienced team in place at the Park District that works well together for this common goal,” said Ron Schneider, Executive Director. “It’s only a matter of time before we’ll be into a new and improved normalcy throughout the Park District. We appreciate the ongoing patience and cooperation of our park patrons as we navigate through safe practices in the parks,” he added.
