Welcome to Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR). If this is your first time visiting our website, take some time and browse through our impressive inventory of parks, facilities, and activities. No matter your age or area of interest, Williamson County Parks and Recreation offers something for everyone.
With more than 30 properties under our management, Williamson County Parks and Recreation is committed to serving our growing community. In addition to our main recreation facilities in Franklin, Brentwood, Nolensville, Spring Hill, and Fairview, we also provide satellite centers in College Grove, Bethesda, and Hillsboro/Leiper’s Fork.
Our main recreation facilities have everything you need to meet your fitness goals. State-of-the-art wellness centers, spacious gymnasiums, and group fitness studios are among the many options to keep you in tip-top shape. You and your family will love our pools, splash parks, walking tracks, outdoor courts, and playgrounds. In addition, our department has several unique specialty facilities, including the Williamson County Enrichment Center, the Williamson County Performing Arts Center, and two indoor athletic arenas.
A wide variety of programming options are also available at our facilities. Athletic clinics and leagues; aquatic programs; fitness classes and training programs; fine art classes; theatrical activities and entertainment events; recreational classes; therapeutic activities; and senior programs are offered, along with an array of youth summer camp offerings. Classes and activities are open to the general public and available for enrollment year-round.
Our system of passive parks, ball fields, and green spaces offers many choices in how you can enjoy the great outdoors. Timberland Park, located along the Natchez Trace Parkway, reveals scenic overlooks and wooded paths. The Wilkins Branch Mountain Bike Park supplies mountain bike enthusiasts of all levels with more than 6 miles of trails to ride on. You can also join us at Castle Park and meet the queen during the Tennessee Renaissance Festival, hosted every spring.
Williamson County Parks and Recreation employees take great pride in making every experience at our parks and recreation facilities enjoyable for all. Your participation in our properties and programs inspires us to continue building upon our award-winning department. I hope to see you soon at one of our facilities or events.
