Children and Nature Network — "New Tom Lee Park Will Be a Nature Game Changer for Memphis Neighborhood"

Children and Nature Network — "New Tom Lee Park Will Be a Nature Game Changer for Memphis Neighborhood"

"Memphis is the nation’s second poorest large city, and its poorest zip code — 38126 — sits next to Tom Lee Park. Sixty-one percent of the people who live in that mostly-Black zip code are poor, and the median age is 24. In the other surrounding zip codes, 33 percent of the people who live there are poor.

In those neighborhoods, community centers and parks exist, but they tend to be places structured around sports and planned activities and not nature. Like most communities inhabited by people of color, green spaces are rare – and nature parks are rarer."
