Karen Yocum arrived in Utah on June 30, 1988. The following month, Park City Municipal hired her part-time to count the number of people using the tennis courts and hand out equipment.


Since then, Park City recreation has seen a lot of changes. There’s more field space now; the former racquet club is now the PC MARC. Most notably for Yocum, though, is the recreation department’s inclusion of out-of-the-box programming, such as the skate park, dirt jump park, archery and fishing.

Park City Recreation Department

More than 400 surveys were mailed out to Park City and Snyderville Basin residents a couple of weeks ago – to find out what they think are the area’s most important recreation needs. The rest of the community can add their two-cents starting Thursday.

The invites to fill out the recreation survey were chosen randomly by the consultant who was hired for the project. The addresses were selected using the voter registration rolls and emails on file.
