Every Chattanooga community deserves access to a vibrant, safe, and enjoyable park! As the city embarks on a park master planning process, you are invited to a half-day workshop during which participants will strategize together about how to approach planning with an equity lens and support community engagement in parks.
We’ll explore ways to plan for equity, support residents in engaging with parks, and utilize partnerships to increase capacity and bring innovative solutions to park and open space challenges. You’ll hear inspiring guest speakers, learn about critical elements of successful park partnerships, and engage in dialogue with your fellow participants to brainstorm how these insights can be applied to enhance the park system in Chattanooga.
Please join us or send a representative from your team to join this workshop led by City Parks Alliance in partnership with the City of Chattanooga Open Spaces Division, The Trust for Public Land and the Chattanooga Design Studio.
