Greater Houston Pachyderm Club Weekly Meeting

Join the Pachyderms as we welcome Shellye Arnold.  Shellye is the President & CEO of Memorial Park Conservancy, a nonprofit organization charged with operating and maintaining 1,100 acres of Houston’s Memorial Park. At 1,500 acres, Memorial Park is the city’s largest urban park with an important place in the nation’s history and welcomes over 4 million visitors annually from 170 zip codes across the region. She joined the Conservancy in March 2013 and, with her staff, Board, project partners, design team, and donors has led the transformation of Memorial Park that is currently underway. Memorial Park’s Ten-Year Plan will deliver more than $200M of improvements by 2028. This includes the 100-acre Clay Family Eastern Glades and Sports Complex that both opened in 2020, a new 1-mile segment of the Seymour Lieberman Trail that opened in 2022, the 100-acre Kinder Land Bridge and Cyvia and Melvyn Wolff Prairie that opened February 2023 and the Running Complex which opened November 2023.
