Park Patrol employee motivated by simple act of kindness

For first time in 58 years, THPRD phasing in new logo
This doesn’t happen every day ... at least not at THPRD. In October, the THPRD Board of Directors unanimously approved a fresh new logo to better reflect the district's diverse community and services.
The first major logo overhaul since the founding of THPRD in 1955 is being implemented gradually.
