Interview With TRPA Fellow Tommy Lynch

February 21, 2019

Nashville is blessed with a wonderful system  of Parks and Recreation facilities.  In part,  this legacy  can be attributed to  wise civic leaders and to philanthropy of families such as the Lea’s, Warner’s,  Frist’s and so on.  On the other hand, we  have had a succession of outstanding professional  leaders at the Board of Parks and Recreation. One such individual is our guest today Tommy Lynch.  Mark speaks with Tommy about his long career with Nashville Parks and Recreation.  Tommy has recently retired and he shares his observations about the past and future of our parks.
