This gallery contains vintage photographs of employees, events and accomplishments from the Landscape and Forestry Division of the Wichita Parks and Recreation Department in Wichita, Kansas. The photos are from the 50's, 60's, & early 70's and were taken by various staff personnel.
I wanted to share these photographs that document a slice of Wichita's Parks and Recreation Department history; a rich history of the countless hours and hard work performed by many proud employees over the years. Their dedication shaped the landscape of the community, making Wichita a beautiful place to live.
I was proud to be part of the organization during my 37 year career, carrying on and maintaining the work accomplished by previous employees as represented in these photos.
The photos in this gallery are now available in my recently published book, available here
