New Parks & Recreation Director
Nik Stroup, a 22-year City of Bothell employee, is the new Parks & Recreation Director for the City.
Stroup, a Bothell resident, began his career at the City of Bothell as a maintenance worker. He has held various other roles including Citizen Response Coordinator, Section Manager, Public Works Superintendent and Deputy Director of Public Works Operations. He served as Acting Public Works Director during Erin Leonhart’s stint as Acting Deputy City Manager, offering him the opportunity to “test drive” a department head position for several months. We're excited to welcome him to his new role.
