Jacob’s Nature Park at Sinking Creek is Johnson City’s newest park. The park’s name was selected by the Johnson City Commission to honor 6-year-old Jacob Francisco, who died in 2004 after two weeks of suffering the effects of E. coli.
Boone Watershed Partnership has taken a lead role in lowering the high E. coli content of Sinking Creek and building a hiking bridge over the creek. Future projects include building a large, covered outdoor classroom devoted to environmental studies.
