Chester County’s new Parks and Trails Manager Andrew McMullen

Chester County Parks + Preservation Director David Stauffer announced the appointment of Andrew McMullen as the County’s new Parks and Trails Manager. McMullen moves to this role following 22 years with the department starting as a part-time maintenance worker, becoming a Regional Park Ranger and later, serving as the Assistant Parks and Trails Manager.

“Andrew’s strong leadership qualities and enthusiasm for connecting visitors with our Chester County parks and trails make him a great fit for the position,” said Stauffer.

As the Parks and Trails Manager, McMullen is responsible for the day-to-day management and operations of Chester County’s seven regional park sites and the three regional trails. McMullen succeeds Owen Prusack who retired in November after 41 years with the County.

“I have always been proud to offer the community exceptional parks and trails,” said McMullen. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue doing so in the role of Parks and Trails Manager.”

McMullen is a graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education. He served as a sergeant with the United States Marine Corps from 2000-2006 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. While deployed, he worked with local governments to build community infrastructure and obtain supplies for schools.

The Chester County Parks + Preservation Department provides preservation, recreation, educational, and stewardship services to the residents and visitors of Chester County so they can connect with natural and cultural resources and thrive in a sustainable healthy community.
