Marissa Davis, project director for NJPHK-Trenton, was recently appointed to the Mercer County Park Commission board. Started in 1958, the Mercer County Park Commission was established to acquire land for recreational facilities throughout Mercer County to meet the need of the growing population. Davis is one of nine commissioners who is charged with promoting and encouraging outdoor recreation, as well as keeping the parks clean and accessible for all residents.
“I’m honored to serve with a group of people that work diligently to improve the culture of health for Mercer County residents. We understand the need for family-friendly parks in our community,” said Davis.
Today, Mercer County has nine parks where thousands of residents enjoy the outdoors each year. The Mercer County Parks Commission holds public meetings the last Wednesday of the month where residents are encouraged to attend to provide feedback and offer suggestions for improvement.
