Southeast Corner Day of Service

November 11, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Map to GreenhouseOverton Park is getting a new space, and we need YOUR help to dream big about the future! But first, we have to clean it up…

The southeast corner of Overton Park has been used as a City vehicle maintenance facility for the past century. Now that the City services have moved to a new location, a part of the space will return to parkland under Overton Park Conservancy’s management. We’re excited to welcome the community into the space and imagine what we could see and do there. We’re planning to focus on a greenhouse bay and the surrounding area, exploring some pop-up programming over the next few months.

First, we’re starting with several clean-up days to make the space safe and usable for events. And that’s where you come in!
