Hello my name is Ryan Flanders and I am the new Recreation Leader at Corcoran Recreation Center. I have been a Minneapolis Park Board employee for 15 years with 10 years being full time. I come from a background of Youth Development, Youth Mentorship, and Youth programming that encompassed many communities in Minneapolis. I grew up and live in South Minneapolis (Longfellow Neighborhood), and graduated from South High School in 1997, and from the University Of Minnesota in 2004, GO TIGERS! GO GOPHERS! I enjoy meeting new people, hearing about the community, and possibilities on how WE can make it better!
Corcoran Park is ready and excited for the spring and summer season! There will be many fun programs being offered from pre-school art classes, drum and guitar lessons, Youthline Mentorship opportunities, and field trips to the larger community events as the annual Summer Solstice Festival “Xopantla” in June and the annual Ice Cream Social and Movie in the Park event in July.
