Limited Capacity full

Meet at Waterhouse Pavilion by 9:30am so you can register for the conference and check-in with the mobile workshop leader before heading off to the mobile workshop as a group. 

Workshop transportation: via Bikes (Bikes will be provided)

Join a joint collaboration between City Government, Non-profit and Grassroots Advocacy Organizations on a bike ride from urban neighborhood to public park and greenway. This guided bike ride will highlight the proximity of high quality parks and greenways in Chattanooga, and on this ride we will identify problems and creative ways to improve the experience of getting from the neighborhood to park. Sterchi Farm Park and the South Chickamauga Greenway serve 30,000 (most disadvantaged) Chattanoogans, but many of the people are unaware of the park, nor do they have easy means of getting to the greenway other than driving. We hope that this workshop will result in actionable ways to improve the experience of getting from front door to neighborhood park.
