The Trust for Public Land is working with the City of Chattanooga to turn a 1.4-acre site in the Oak Grove neighborhood into a vibrant community park, currently referred to as Lynnbrook Park.
The Trust for Public Land has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to fund an artist-led engagement and design process for the park. The goals of the Artist-Organizer (the Artist), will be to engage with community members, to create and
maintain strong partnerships with well-trusted leaders within the community, to help build a vision for the future of Lynnbrook Park. The project scope will include deep community engagement, artistic
workshops for the community, and temporary artistic installations.
