Overton Park Conservancy – Inspires A New Generation Of Park Supporters!
Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Tina Sullivan, Executive Director of Overton Park Conservancy, who provides some history and important updates for Overton Park, which uniquely connects the Memphis community, protects history and the environment, and inspires a new generation of park supporters. The nonprofit Conservancy was founded in December 2011 to manage 184 acres of public parkland including the Greensward, Rainbow Lake and East Parkway picnic areas, the formal gardens, Veterans Plaza, and the Old Forest State Natural Area. During the interview, Tina shares how they are celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling that protected Overton Park by telling the stories of the activists and collecting memories and special moments from those who have enjoyed the Park over the years. She also highlights the masterplan project, ways you can enjoy and support Overton Park and Overton Park Conservancy, and more.
