Lynn Gripon was the first chairman of the League City Parks Board in 1976. Because of his relationship with Mayor Johnnie Arolfo and his everlasting determination to make his community a place of quality and beauty, he worked for the creation of the League City Parks Department during League City’s early years between 1962 and 1975.

After years of dedication to this effort, he finally got Mayor Arolfo and the City Council to establish a League City Parks Board and Parks Department in 1976.
