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.
