John Granville was my first choice for the park director position 20 years ago when I served on the MetroPark Board. He impressed me with his enthusiasm and true dedication to land preservation.
He has proved to be a very wise choice. We have worked together on many projects. It has been a great 20 years. John has left a wonderful heritage for the people of Erie County.
It is sad to see him leave. He will be missed. This is also a farewell wish from a dear friend and past park commissioner William Oldham.
