Marjorie Mayfield Jackson calls Paradise Creek Nature Park an urban oasis.
But the 40-acre park is missing something.
Thousands of students visit it on field trips every year, and there’s only one facility for them – a portable toilet.
“To welcome students and the public,” that has to change, said Mayfield Jackson, executive director of the Elizabeth River Project.
So the organization has arranged for an addition to the park: the Fred W. Beazley River Academy.
