Meet the Director

Park it right here, folks. We have a little something to tell you about Lynn Haven Parks. The new Director wants to change them - and change them for the better. 

Ty Farris joined our team as the director in July 2020. Ty brings a positive approach, forward thinking, and he is a strong advocate for enhancing, designing, and rebuilding our parks and facilities with a focus on innovation and a sense of uniqueness. His goal is to encourage greater community engagement by creating unique spaces and opportunities for every member of our community to enjoy.

Prior to joining the City of Lynn Haven, Ty worked for the City of Panama City for 22-years and served its citizens as an Engineering Inspector, Leisure Services Manager, and as the director of the Quality of Life Department. He retired from the City of Panama City in March 2020 and joined our team shortly afterward.

Ty is a proud veteran of the US Air Force and is recognized as a Park and Recreation Professional by the National Recreation and Park Association, and by the Florida Recreation and Parks Association.

He is excited to serve our community and looks forward to providing quality services that will ensure Lynn Haven is not only a great place to live, but also to work and play!
