MEMPHIS CURRENT ISSUE no3
Memphis Current joins Outdoors Inc. founder Joe Royer for a cycling trip across the Mississippi.
Across the River, our neighbors in Crittenden County are working with Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation to create a space for cyclists, joggers, photographers and nature-enthusiasts alike. Bordering the western banks of the Mississippi River, directly adjacent to the Memphis skyline, the Big River Park is a sprawling scene of gravel roads, flood plains and gorgeous river views. The park's gravel paths are marked with large granite stones that were reclaimed from the Frisco Bridge's original bridge support columns, which have since been reconstructed. Though the park is in early stages of development, founder of Outdoors Inc. Joe Royer and his wife Carol Lee understanad the unrivaled potential the park has for Memphians across the river.
