Earth Day Thought: the Green Mesh

the Intersection of the Wolf River Greenway and the Memphis Greenline, Justin McGregor collectionMore than new parks, we need green connections between the parks we already have. We need to be able to walk/bike/jog/etc. between the parks we already have, without having to route through Dyersburg and putting life and limb at unreasonable risk. That's sort of like adding more parks, of course, but the growth of a green mesh is the important thing, not the addition of discrete green pockets that require internal combustion for access.

The photo on the right is another by Justin. He's been doing a lot of exploring of the trails around Shelby Farms and the Wolf River and has taken a lot of very cool pictures. Click on the picture to take a look.
