The future of Woody Park will be discussed during Saturday’s monthly meeting of the Pinckney Neighborhood Association.
The meeting will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, in meeting room D South on the lower level of Lawrence Memorial Hospital, 325 Maine.
Lawrence city and hospital leaders are considering turning the historic, 4-acre park just north of the hospital into a parking lot.
LMH President Gene Meyer and City Manager David Corliss are seeking input from the public before moving forward with any plans. They plan to be at the meeting, which is open to anyone.
Woody Park was purchased by the city in 1936 and named in honor of Elgin Woody Sr., a Lawrence resident who organized baseball and softball leagues for minority children.
