11/24/2009

Charlotte, NC-- Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation official Greg Jackson has been named the new Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Greensboro. He will take the position on January 19, 2010.

Jackson has served in the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department since 2001 and has been Director of its Park Operations Division since 2005. As such managed 135 parks, a staff of 200, and all athletic programs. He will leave his current job in early January. Of his decision to accept the position in Greensboro, Jackson says, “It was all about being a department director in a city that is a good fit for me and my family. I’m going to miss all my friends in Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation and all my friends in the county.”

Jackson previously served in Mecklenburg as General Manager the Central Park District II and of the Northeast Park District. Before that he was on the staff of Lee County Park and Recreation in Ft. Myers, FL. He has been a recreation professional for 18 years.

Jackson is well known for saying that he lives the “recreation lifestyle.” He, his wife and two sons frequently go biking, hiking, camping, and play sports in parks, greenways and nature preserves.

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation’s Deputy Director Dot Law said, “Please join me in congratulating Greg Jackson on his new position. We are very sad to see Greg leave but also very proud of him.”
