The Boston Park Rangers welcomed a new class of seasonal Rangers with a ceremony held at Franklin Park on May 15 adhering to proper social distancing guidelines.  

Boston's eight new Park Rangers completed a comprehensive training program that prepares rangers for their dual mission as both park ambassadors and first responders during these unprecedented times.

Presenting the new recruits with their certificates are Boston Parks Commissioner Ryan Woods and Chief Boston Park Ranger Gene Survillo (left).
This year’s class includes Brighton residents Tyler Bowman, Alexander Hartgrove, and Michael Materia, Dorchester residents Michael McRae and Randall Pinkham, Jamaica Plain residents Eli King and Emily Wright, and Connor Decarlo of South Boston.
Keeping a safe distance, Commissioner Woods reaches out to hand a new Ranger his certificate.

We look forward to seeing the new Rangers out in our parks, historic burying grounds, recreational areas, and open spaces. Congratulations!
