Brad Barnes
Brad Barnes, the Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Katy, recently completed the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Directors School, a two-year professional development training program for current and future leaders of parks and recreation agencies. Directors School prepares students to effectively and efficiently lead park and recreation departments so they can best serve the community. The Directors School curriculum is based on the national standards of best practices for parks and recreation agencies as identified by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA). CAPRA accredits park and recreation agencies for excellence in operation and service. Graduates gain insight and skills that enable them to create a successful park and recreation agency. Brad is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Science. He has been the Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Katy for 2 years and has been in this field for 19 years. He is also an active member of the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS), the Greater Gulf Coast Parks and Recreation Directors Association (GGCPRDA), and serves on the CPRP/E Certification Committee of the NRPA. Brad has served in various roles in Aiken, South Carolina; Brownsville, Texas, Incline Village, Nevada; McAllen, Texas; Jacksboro, Texas; and Holbrook, Arizona. Brad is one of only a few Certified Park and Recreation Executives (CPRE) in the country, the highest individual certification available through the NRPA. When asked about his thoughts on his role in Katy, Barnes replied with: "Professionally, it is refreshing to be part of an organization that recognizes and supports the role of parks, programs and events in the community.

The eight-mile trail between Graniteville and Clearwater, which includes Langley Pond, is currently being developed for canoes and kayaks and will be the catalyst for the entire Horse Creek Trail System, said Barnes.
We will need to identify other funding sources for the future development," Barnes said.

Former County Recreation Director Brad Barnes said it was gratifying to see the trail being used after working for so many months with staff and volunteers to orchestrate the development of the project.

"At least for the last year, we've been working on it if not every day, then certainly every week," Barnes said, noting trustees from the Aiken County Detention Center also helped to clear brush and debris."It's really satisfying seeing that people are able to use it. We put a lot of work into it."
He added the benefits of the project will hopefully be two-fold, creating a stronger promotion of natural resource conservation as well as encouraging more recreational opportunities in the area.
