" DuMor fully endorses NRPA's
tagline, 'Because everyone deserves
a great park.' For too long,
access to parks has not been fair
across all communities, " says Anita
Rudy, DuMor president. " We
believe everyone deserves a great
park with great site furnishings,
which we strive to provide. Every
park deserves to have nice benches
for people to sit and great tables for
people to either eat or play games.
These
elements
are
necessities.
Benches and tables are the physical
symbols in parks that everyone
is welcome. DuMor loves being a
part of NRPA's Parks Build Community
projects because they work
to develop great parks for underserved
communities. Parks can offer
quality time outdoors with areas
that invite people to sit quietly
and reflect, as well as areas that
encourage people to come together
with friends and neighbors to
picnic and play. In this way, parks
help to enrich the lives of those in
the community. "
City of Chattanooga Parks
Planner and PBC Project Manager
Akosua Cook says Lynnbrook
Park construction will start in the
fall, with completion slated for
spring 2022. " Right now, we are
setting the stage. We are getting
permits in place and finalizing the
design. Recently, we hung some
signs and banners at the site to
let the community know what the
park will look like and what's happening, "
she says. " We are also
building a virtual meeting space
where community engagement
will happen. This space will keep
people updated on what is happening
throughout the process. It
will give them a place where they
can ask questions, provide feedback
on what they're seeing and
maintain contact. "
As the
construction
project
continues toward creating a place
where the local community can
build lasting memories and relationships,
there are still opportunities
to be a part of the creation of
Lynnbrook Park through the donor
program. For more information
about the 2021 Parks Build Community
project and how you can be
involved, contact Nury Marquez,
NRPA's senior director of development,
