Public Promenade begins to be a public promenade again!!
The public plaza on the riverside of the University of Memphis Law School and the new pedestrian bridge that links it to an improved Confederate Park were funded by the Hyde Foundation and are a major step in recreating a beautiful public space on our riverfront. A huge thank you to them for their gift to the public and this important connection. As Mayor A. C. Wharton pointed out at the ribbon cutting, the bridge conceptually and physically links our past to our promising future.
Go down, watch the river, and walk the bridge. The bridge lights are especially fun.
