Sustainable SITES Tour in Memphis March 30

Join the USGBC Tennessee Memphis Branch for the first in our Behind the Scene Green Tour series for a tour of one of the very first Sustainable SITES projects in the world - Woodland Discovery Playground at Shelby Farms Park!

Certified in 2011, this 4 acre playground accomplishes two goals: woodland restoration and a blending of play space and nature for the health and development benefits of children.

Not only is Woodland Discovery Playground a model for sustainable landscape design, it is a 5-star yelp rated playground that was featured in a Mental Floss article: 16 of the coolest playgrounds in the world in June of 2016, and Inspired Playgrounds Around the World in the South China Morning Star in June 2015.

Join us for a behind the scenes look at what makes this playground so special, as we have a special guided tour by the staff at Shelby Farms, and the general contractor of the project.

If your company is interested in being a sponsor for this event, our Behind the Scene Green Tour series, or a future Green Tour in the Memphis Regional area, please contact Holly Baird at, or 615.933.8633.  

Tickets are free to members of the USGBC and $5.00 for non-members.
