River Talk – The Story of the Jefferson Street Pocket Park

March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Every public space has a unique story. The future Jefferson Street Pocket Park in North Nashville will not only tell its own story, but also the story of its community. The park will feature public art and historical elements inspired by the surrounding neighborhood.

Join Gary Gaston, CEO of Nashville Civic Design Center, to learn why public spaces and parks are important to communities, and how involving the community in the design and planning process is integral for a successful of public spaces.

Over the past year, Nashville Civic Design Center assisted Metro Parks with community outreach for the design of the park. This event will review the findings from those meetings, as well as what is to come for the future of the Jefferson Street community!
