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.
