On a recent Thursday afternoon, Donte Futrell, Willow Overly and Tavon Powell strolled around the hills of Patterson Park with watchful eyes. Dressed in matching khaki green uniforms, the park rangers inspected a fallen tree, filed a maintenance request, and reminded people that dogs must be leashed at all times while in the park. The three are part of relaunched park ranger program put in place three years after a damning report by the Baltimore Office of the Inspector General led to the firing of two Baltimore Recreation and Parks Department employees and brought scrutiny to the park ranger program.
