Administrative history

The Superintendent was responsible for monitoring subordinate employees who were engaged in a variety of operational, custodial and maintenance duties at municipal parks and recreation areas. He prepared plans for, and assisted in, the development, conservation and improvement of Vancouver's urban parks and facilities. By 1970, the Superintendent was responsible for planning, organizing and implementing a program of public recreation and parks maintenance and development in accordance with policies laid down by the Board of Parks and Recreation and City Council. He provided administrative direction for all Park and Recreation operations and senior staff. He monitored each division of the Park Board to maintain productivity and helped each division assess their job priorities. In 1974, a staff reorganization limited his direct administrative supervision to the directors of Financial Services, Planning, and Recreation Services and the Public Information Officer so that more time was available to plan and develop work methods, procedures, projects and priorities. The Superintendent reported to the elected body of Park Board commissioners. During 1937 to 1940, the full title for this position was Superintendent and Engineer.
