The Parks of Memphis: Planning for the Future

A new civic advocacy group is being created by the City of Memphis Parks & Neighborhoods division, the Hyde Foundation, and the Trust for Public Land, to plan for the future of parks in Memphis.

This group recognizes the importance of the tradition of our historic park system but also its many challenges and unmet needs. At their first meeting in October they highlighted places needing attention and programs needing implementation.

This coming Tuesday, February 4th, from 5:30pm-7:30pm, at the Benjamin Hooks Library, the group will discuss:

  • how to define a unified parks program for the city
  • how to build a strong movement that gets results
  • how to build leadership for this effort
This is a community-wide event and your participation is needed. Please share this info, and add your voice to the future of parks in Memphis!
