A Response to Overton Park Playground Story


A response to our story on Overton Park’s new playground and “day of merrymaking” over the weekend from James Jalenak, chief administrative officer at the Memphis Zoo.

It is about the issue of the park’s greenspace and parking for the zoo.

Jalenak’s response is:

“Actually, the area the zoo uses for overflow parking and the area used for the Conservancy event Saturday were two different parts of the greensward and did not overlap as far as we can tell. As an accomodation to the Conservancy, with which we work together very well, we agreed not to use the overflow parking last Saturday.”
