No Introduction Needed: ParkStar Katherine Mitchell

While not leaving the Friends of the James River Park, Katherine Mitchell’s term as our Board President has expired. She has been a constant presence as we created our Master Plan, which will guide Park development for the next ten years. We are so glad that she is heading up our membership efforts this year, and look forward to many more years of her unwavering support of the Park and the implementation of our Master Plan.

We spoke to her recently, and she told us why she loves the James River Park. She also reminded us of the importance of the Park, for both our physical and mental well being – especially during a pandemic. As she points out, where else can you hear cars overhead, watch a train rumble by, view a city skyline, and still be surrounded by nature?
