When we think "Parks and Rec" we think of Leslie Knope and her color-coded binders. But here in Costa Mesa, our local parks and recreation department is so much more than that!

Our guests, Justin Martin and Ashley Thomas, are two from a team of hardworking people who make so much fun happen in our city. Things like: The Snoopy House, Mobile Recreation Van, Scarecrow Festival, Bark Park, Concerts In The Park - and coming really soon, ARTventure - just to name a few!

We talk to Martin and Thomas about all the fun (and usually free) things happening around town.
