Great Trail Work Session

Twenty people showed up on a Monday night to help work on the running trail -- many thanks to everyone who came out! It was a joint project between Park Friends and Rhodes college, and the entire trail got raked and trimmed.

Trail Work Help Needed

Melanie White, Park Friends board member and daily runner, is planning a work session on the running trail around Overton Park this Monday night (tomorrow) and would love to have some volunteers show up. Weekends can be hard for families, so this is Monday night from 6-8pm (should be cooling off). Meet at the pavilion on the East Parkway side and bring a rake or shovel. Thanks to any of you who can come and help out!

New Midtown Dog Park

The new midtown dog park will be dedicated tomorrow morning (Saturday, June 5th) at 11:00 -- everyone welcome. It's on the old childrens' theater site at 2599 Avery (behind the board of ed and the parks dept.). It's a pilot one, and it's in the possible fairgrounds development area, so it's not fancy in case it gets moved soon, but it's a start. Go on out and support midtown having one if you're free.
