Josh Horton, our new PFI board member, is also taking a lively interest in the development possibilities of Overton Square. This was a thriving area when I was growing up, and it would benefit the park and Midtown in general if it could become so again. It would be amazing if the park and the square were two entertainment hubs people flowed back and forth between -- go to a movie, buy a picnic, walk up to the park to enjoy it, play some frisbee, head back to the square for a cocktail..... What else could you need on a fine Memphis Saturday?
Please visit the new Overton Square community discussion website to give feedback about what you'd like to see in the square. They're compiling ideas to try to influence the owners and developers.
