Dr. Pauline Drake received Park Pride’s Inspiration Award at the 2016 Parks and Greenspace Conference. Dr. Drake worked for years to bring her mother’s dream for a neighborhood park to become a reality. As the Chairperson of the Jennie Drake Park Steering Committee, she has guided the effort to transform four acres of vacant land into a Park with walking trails, native plants, and a creek. The Friends of Jennie Drake Park are proud of this recognition given to Dr. Drake for her hard work.
