JRP Superintendent Nathan Burrell Makes the Climb for Our Weekly Podcast

March 16, 2018 12:34pm

Yesterday we released our newest Views from the Treehouse podcast episode — an interview with James River Park Superintendent Nathan Burrell. It’s a bit longer than some of our previous episodes because, well, it’s the James River Park, far and away the most visited attraction in the Richmond area, and we had a lot to discuss.

We asked Burrell about the future of the park, specifically the upcoming master plan (the last park master plan was completed in 1968) and why it will be crucial in guiding the future of this treasured resource. But the conversation also ranged widely, from crime and policing to trails and connectivity to equality of park access to his relationship with Levar Stoney and what the new administration will mean for the JRP. If you’re a park user, you don’t want to miss this interview!
