Doug Freeman

President and Executive Director, Weequahic Park Sports Authority ; South Ward Republican Committee Chairman and 44th Elected District Leader

Five years ago, Doug (right) and his wife, Joy, were visiting Weequahic Park in the South Ward for an event with their children when they saw the great need for beautification of the park. They started Weequahic Park Sports Authority with their staff of five volunteers and began the process of bringing the park back to life. The fruits of their labor are evident with residents enjoying the park every day, and at special events—from the new kite festival to the first park fireworks show in years and the 100,000 Spring Tulips Initiative.
