Meet Your Parks & Recreation Leadership Team

Director of Parks & Recreation Julia Thompson

Is it possible that the holidays are right around the corner? Yes indeed…..the kids are back in school already and we are looking forward to cooler weather! Each year our seasons seem to roll around faster and faster like a merry-go-round in one of our parks! We wrapped up our busy summer season with so many exciting events and programs from fun runs, mermaid parties and garden harvests to baseball tournaments, and the ever popular summer garage sale! Your Parks and Recreation Department provides great memories, no matter the season! This fall we would like for YOU, our citizen advocate, to take a look around at all that makes Cape Girardeau a great place to live work and PLAY! As I have always maintained, FUN is our business and we take it very seriously. Our staff works very hard to bring you the best in programs, facilities, parks, trails, and events along with a quality of life that you can be proud to call Cape your home. I am very humbled by this fact and grateful to our professional staff who give so much to help make each season as special for you as the next. BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS!
Recreationally Yours,
