In the next chapter for Chattanooga’s downtown Riverfront, what should parks look like - and how should the riverfront parks align with the City of Chattanooga’s goal of building a “city in a park”?

A community open house this week offers the chance for the public to learn about the possibilities and provide feedback.

The open house for “Evolving Our Riverfront Parks” is Thursday at the Hunter Museum, from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.

Emily Mack is president and CEO of River City Company.

Scott Martin is administrator of Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors.
