View the inspiring Oak Ridge Natural Assets Guidebook, produced in early 2020 by Legacy Parks Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Guidebook is the result of a collaborative project between civic and business leaders in response to the recommendation from the Oak Ridge Blueprint Plan that urges the exploration of both recreational opportunities and enhancement of the area’s natural assets.
The initiative was funded through a grant from UCOR, UT-Battelle, CNS/Y-12, and Oak Ridge Associated Universities. Legacy Parks Executive Director Carol Evans and Board Member Don Parnell coordinated the team from Ackermann Marketing & PR, Ross/Fowler Landscape Architects and Equinox Environmental.
The Guidebook effectively demonstrates the potential economic benefits of existing and improved recreation and natural areas, in order to encourage project implementation by a variety of interested entities through collaboration with City and County agencies.
