Tom Watson Park Lease

The department manages Tom Watson Park through a recreation lease from IBM. Management challenges include prairie dogs in the surrounding landscape. The department is researching sustainable management options for the park, which features a playground, shelter, and tennis and volleyball courts. The department will coordinate with IBM to develop management recommendations for PRAB and City Council. [This discussion is nested within a larger overview of financial sustainability strategies for the entire parks system].
