Kelly Doyle has directed the city's Recreation and Community Services Department since 1990. This month he plans to retire.

While serving Mission Viejo, Doyle has overseen the installation of several new parks, including the Curtis, Beebe and Gilleran Park sports complexes. Here are some of the major events Doyle was closely involved in:

  • The City also acquired the Recreation and Tennis Centers from the Mission Viejo Company.
  • The Montanoso and Sierra Recreation Centers were renovated, and the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center received an extensive facelift and expansion.
  • Improvements were also made to Oso Viejo Park. 
  • This year, the Marguerite Tennis Pavilion was the first in the United States to host the Wheelchair Tennis Masters.
Along with his other duties, Kelly has dedicated much of his time over the years to being the staff liaison to the City's Marines and Sailors Adoption Committee, which works with the City’s adopted Headquarters Battalion of the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton.

Kelly has lived in San Clemente for more than three decades and plans to continue running the San Clemente Beach Trail, spending time at the beach and hiking, traveling, sightseeing, boating and skiing. He also plans to volunteer where it benefits members of the armed forces.
