Eddie Eastes has been named the new director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Manhattan.

City manager Ron R. Fehr announced the appointment on Thursday.

Eastes was selected from an initial pool of more than 55 applicants in a national search, and chosen from four finalists who went through an extensive interview and assessment process.

“[Eastes] brings a wealth of professional experience and knowledge of local conditions, strengths and needs regarding recreation and sports programming and facility needs,” Fehr said.
