Lowry replacing Wynns as Indy parks director

Stuart Lowry was named by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard yesterday as director of Indy Parks and Recreation.

Lowry replaces Joe Wynns, who resigned unexpectedly nearly a week ago after eight years on the job.

Early this month, Wynns said he had been asked to cut $2.3 million from the department’s $17 million budget, although he later said in a published report that his resignation wasn’t driven by the constraint. Days later, Ballard proposed a 2009 budget with $3 million less for parks.

Lowry was director of family programs at White River State Park, and also has directed interpretation at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
