General Manager Randy Murphy
I am a native Californian and grew up in the Bay Area. I am an avid sports fan, particularly of the SF Giants, 49ers, Sharks and Warriors. I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Phoenix and a Masters in Public Administration from Golden Gate University. I have lived in many places around California and moved to Butte County in 2007 and most recently relocated to Oroville. I was very involved in youth sports and cheerleading when my two children were younger, not only as a coach and booster club member, but also as Treasurer and then President on a Little League Board, so I understand the dynamics and passions of parents when their children are involved in organized activities. I am very excited to be here at the District to help further its Mission and help “provide and maintain quality parks, recreation experiences and related facilities . . . in a fiscally sustained manner that complements the natural resources and cultural heritage of our community.” I look forward to helping the District improve its operations and encourage all, young and old, to check out what the District has to offer. Please let me know your thoughts, questions, comments, criticisms and/or concerns.
Yours in public service – Randy

Recreation Supervisor Brian Wilson
I joined FRRPD as the Recreation Supervisor in the Fall of 2018. In this position, my primary responsibility is to develop, plan, implement, and supervise Recreation programming for the District. Prior to joining FRRPD, I worked for the Durham Recreation and Park District for 5 years, as the Recreation Supervisor, and most recently as the District Manager. I am a Chico State graduate, with a degree in Kinesiology: Movement Studies/Coaching Administration, and a Minor in Physical Education/Teacher Education, where classes in Outdoor Education led to my appreciation of the outdoors. Originally from Santa Cruz, CA, where I graduated from Harbor High School, I have been in the Chico area since 1991, and currently live in the town of Paradise with my wife and two children. I am committed to the development and growth of recreation programming within the District and will work hard to provide the appropriate support and services needed to provide quality recreation experiences for the community. Please feel free to reach out and share your thoughts, ideas, comments, questions and concerns regarding the Recreation Department at FRRPD.

My mother’s side of the family moved to Oroville in the late 1950’s, and I still have family in town that I visit often. My mother moved to Chico in the 1980’s, where I was born and raised. I have always appreciated Oroville’s parks, and more recently when I had my own children we would frequent Riverbend Park to enjoy the natural beauty of the river and the other aspects of the park. My wife and I have three girls, and they can spend hours in the parks if we let them. I have been in the construction field as a career since I graduated high school, my father is a general contractor in Chico and I worked with him for years. I branched out into disaster restoration and insurance claim work in 2009, and learned a lot about that side of the industry. I have been with FRRPD since early 2018 and I look forward to making our current parks great, and expanding where we can to have even better facilities.
