A Word 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 camp program or swim lessons. Enjoy year round family events and band concerts. WCPR continues to grow along with the county population and now manages 30+ properties. These include full service recreations centers in 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 and fields. We recently added two new wonderful additions to our community, an enrichment center and adjoining performing arts center in the heart of Franklin. 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 and other online resources 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.
