Steven Schriver selected as new Landscape Gardener with the City of Bristol Parks, Recreation, Youth & Community Services

The City of Bristol Department of Parks, Recreation, Youth and Community Services is pleased to announce the selection of Steven Schriver as the new Landscape Gardener in our Parks, Grounds & Facilities Maintenance Division. Steven holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Management from Brigham Young University and he also worked in Garden Maintenance while on campus. Most recently Steven was serving as the horticulturist with the Chippanee Country Club in Bristol since 2018.

Over 40 applicants were received for the Landscape Gardener position and a rigorous multi-round interview process was held. Superintendent Dr. Josh Medeiros noted, “The Landscape Gardener position in our parks division is a big job. We have over 730 acres of city parks and dozens of complex garden beds across the system that require care and only 1 dedicated gardener to do it. One of the things that impressed me most about Steven was his ability to think critically about his work, prioritize tasks, and articulate ways to innovate and improve efficiencies in this space.”

In anticipation of his new role, Steven said, "I'm excited to share my passion for horticulture with the community and be a part of maintaining and improving the beautiful outdoor spaces throughout Bristol."
