12:00 Noon - 1 p.m.
Through the Guadalupe River Park
Join us via Zoom for an important discussion with Jason Su, Executive Director of the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy a nonprofit organization which provides community leadership for the development and active use of the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens.
Jason will describe how the past year has made it even more apparent how vital our parks and open spaces are to our community's health, well-being, and sense of connection. He believes it has also revealed how much potential parks hold to our recovery and neighborhood uplift.
Guadalupe River Park is a three-mile ribbon of park land that runs along the banks of the river in the heart of downtown San Jose. The goals of the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy are to support the health and stewardship of our river, make the park and trail more welcoming and inviting, and support community development while uplifting our neighbors and our city.
Jason is also currently a Lecturer in the Urban and Regional Planning Department at San Jose State University where he received a Masters degree in Urban Planning. He was previously the Street Life Manager with the San Jose Downtown Association where he led projects including a downtown mural program, public art projects, an artistic crosswalk program, two pop-up dog parks, and stewardship of the urban tree canopy.
The one hour Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon. Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the event.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
All are welcome so please forward this notice to other people who are interested in this important topic.
