Mayor calls R Park “a gem”


Teton County Mayor Sara Flitner has been involved with R Park since early on and in a number of capacities: as a partner with her firm, an advocate, and mayor. Her PR company, Flitner Strategies began as part of our acclaimed local team, selected by community stakeholders.

Since then, as mayor, her relationship has shifted as Teton County has become a close partner. R Park’s nonprofit owner, Rendezvous Lands Conservancy, provided the county an easement for the Snake River Pedestrian Bridge and community pathway to land on and pass through the park. In doing so, R Park serves as an essential connection and valued gathering place between our Jackson Hole communities.

It’s a great example of what is possible when a nonprofit vision, community support and public collaboration come together to enhance our community,

asserted the mayor. Her opinion, as well as those from families, a biologist, a 5th generation local and community educator provide a holistic view of what R Park provides different people.
