Baytown has a tradition of excellence in its Parks and Recreation Department that has been recognized many times over the years by awards from the Texas Recreation and Park Society. One of the departments unique strengths was recognized this year when the group’s East Region recognized Tracey Prothro, superintendent of natural resources programs, as its park professional of the year.

In her role, Prothro oversees operations of the Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Education Center, the Baytown Nature Center and the George and Freida Chandler Arboretum.
