       I love it, he said this week. I'm working outdoors in a beautiful place, and I get to meet a lot of nice people.
       A Westside resident, he's previously been the summer ranger at the city's North Slope Reservoir area.
       Weeks can be found at the park at different times, putting in fences, working on miscellaneous maintenance needs or talking to open space visitors.
