Chain of Parks
The Chain of Parks located on Park Avenue in downtown Tallahassee was established in the late 19th Century and planted by the Tallahassee Improvement Association (TIA). Ponce de Leon Park was the first to be established followed by Lewis Park, Cherokee Park, E. Peck Greene Park, McCarty Park, Bloxham Park and Genevieve Randolph Park (shown here) which was named after the woman who spearheaded the work of the TIA.
