Phoenix Nonprofits Step Up to Reopen Rec Facilities

In an effort to reopen more than a dozen parks and recreation facilities that have closed in Phoenix due to budget cuts, city officials have spent the past several months reviewing proposals from nonprofit organizations that want to step in to operate and maintain them. The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is outside groups were announced, with more partnerships expected later this year, according to The Arizona Republic.

So far, the partnerships appear to make sense. The Arizona Horse Lovers Park, for example, will now be overseen by the Horse Lovers Management Corp., the South Phoenix Youth Center will be run by the Black Men of Phoenix organization and the North Mountain Visitor Center will be supported by the Save Our Mountains Foundation.

All nonprofits chosen to help reopen the shuttered facilities must demonstrate that they have the ability to provide services at a level similar to what the city provided before the budget cuts.
