Lusk / Mewborn Riverview Boardwalk
Hundreds of people were involved in the 1973-1974 grassroots effort to save what is now known as Wildwood Preserve. Dr. William Mewborn and John S. Lusk served as co-chairmen and were the heart and soul of the campaign to pass the levy. Their leadership continued in citizens for MetroParks through other successful metroparks levy campaigns. John Lusk also served as vice president of the board of park commissioners, 1986-1993.
The riverview boardwalk was dedicated in
their honor, July 23, 1990.
