A new grant was awarded to the Overton Park Conservancy. It will improve access to the park from adjoining neighborhoods and business centers.
This comes after at least one improvement has already begun to take shape this year.
Among those included: Shelby Farms, Overton Square, Cooper-Young, Broad Avenue Arts District, and Crosstown. Local architects Ritchie Smith Associates was chosen to plan the additions to the park and surrounding areas.
So far, there’s no word on exactly what the firm or park have in mind. You can read the whole release from the Mid-South Regional Greenprint here.
