Jacqueline “Jackie” Rodriguez, Town Hall recreation director, will begin maternity leave sometime in the near future. Rodriguez took over as recreation director for the county-managed program in May 2015.

Kyla Brown, recreation bureau chief for Riverside County Regional Park and Open Space District, current manager of Idyllwild’s recreation program, said they are in the process of hiring someone to replace Rodriguez. “We’re looking for a permanent replacement and will be moving Jackie to another location at the end of her leave period,” said Brown.

Prior to assuming her present position, Rodriguez worked in a similar capacity for the City of Riverside Parks and Recreation Department, supervising programs that served young persons from ages 4 to 17.
