Welcome from the Director
Welcome to Williamson County Parks and Recreation. It is my hope that you and your family are regular users of our facilities, fields and parks. If not, I personally invite you to work out in our state-of-the-art wellness centers, take an exercise class, swim or learn to paint. Take your family to one of our parks and enjoy nature on a brisk walk; play on the playground or have a picnic. Try pickleball. Play soccer or softball on our fields. Join the community band or take part in children’s theatre. Enjoy a game of tennis on our courts, or take a lesson to improve your skills. Enroll your kids in an art class, our annual summer camps or swim lessons. Enjoy year-round family events and band concerts.
WCPR continues to grow along with county population and now manages 34 properties. These include full-service recreation centers in the county’s five largest towns: Franklin, Brentwood, Fairview, Spring Hill and Nolensville; parks including Timberland, a rustic, outdoor park on the historic Natchez Trace Parkway; indoor soccer arenas and numerous community soccer, baseball and softball complexes. In June 2017, we opened two wonderful additions to our Academy Park campus in the heart of Franklin. The Enrichment Center at Academy Park provides programs and activities for all ages, with a special emphasis on our active senior population. The adjoining Performing Arts Center is a state-of-the-art theatre, available for rental by community groups and performers.
This is YOUR department-a public service of Williamson County government. Everyone is welcome to use our facilities and attend our classes and events at a minimal cost. Please take advantage of our website to find and register for all the many programs and events that WCPR has to offer!
I take great pride in the team of employees that provide the inspiration and hard work that make this award-winning department such a success. I hope to see you soon at one of our facilities or community events.
