Ella W. Sharp Park Board

About the Board 

The Ella W. Sharp Park Board of Trustees oversees the property bequeathed to the City of Jackson in 1912. That property is now Ella Sharp Park, the City of Jackson’s largest public park. 

The board oversees the park activities and progress based on Ella W. Sharp’s requests in her will.
