The Salida Recreation Department has hired Matt Sweeney as it’s new Events Coordinator. Matt moved here with his girlfriend, Lara, from Colorado Springs in 2015 shortly after completing a degree in Outdoor Recreation. Matt has been coming to the city of Salida since he was a kid for the vast recreation opportunities- mainly rafting, skiing, biking, and of course, swimming at the Aquatic Center. Matt is enthusiastic about serving our awesome community by working for Colorado Parks & Wildlife, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Chaffee County, Monarch Mountain, Chaffee County Fire Protection District, and now, Salida Recreation! If you don’t see him on the slopes or on the river, you’ll definitely find him on the Pickleball courts! Welcome, Matt!
