Power of Parks: Charles Gilbert

Welcome to Power of Parks, a podcast produced by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department, where we share inspiring stories from people who have benefited from nature, parks and recreation.

Episode 9 features guest Charles Gilbert, the founder of the Coalition of Men of Palm Beach County, an organization that ensures boys in Belle Glade, South Bay, Pahokee and surrounding areas are able to read at or above grade level by or before the third grade. He’s also an avid supporter of parks and recognizes the benefits of recreational facilities and activities.
