The next Society of Urban Perambulators on June 19th will be a little different than past neighborhood strolls. First, we will be shifting our focus to the Indiana side of the Ohio River. Second, we will be exploring the future of a new urban park with our good friend and Executive Director of Origin Park, Scott Martin.
Origin Park is over 600 acres, with 1.5 miles of shoreline, 180 bird species, 12,000 years of human settlement, 75 years of destruction, coming together as one systemic landscape vision. You won't want to miss this opportunity to see and hear about a park design to reshape and rewild our urban core.
We will meet up at 9:45 am at the Clark Cabin at 1021 Harrison Ave, Clarksville, IN 47129. There will be an Origin Park parking sign letting attendees know where to park. As with previous SoUP events, this walk will be approximately 1.5 miles, mostly paved, some grassy hills.
Perambulators are recommended to wear good walking/hiking shoes and long pants, and bring some water. The perambulation will occur rain or shine unless lightning is in the area.
If you like to walk, see and talk about neighborhoods and cities, and want to join us that Saturday or for future strolls, email Patrick Piuma or join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thesocietyofurbanperambulators/.
The events are open to all but in order to keep walking group sizes manageable and maintain safe physical distancing we need to know how many people plan to join us.
