Tullahoma Parks and Recreation closes facilities

Tullahoma Parks and Recreation has closed the community centers, park restrooms, pavilions and playgrounds. Waggoner Park, including the Dog Park at Waggoner Park and Johnson Lane Soccer Complex are closed to the public at this time.

Park restrooms, pavilions, and playgrounds are closed. 

“These areas contain many common surfaces that can be a source of contamination,” said Winston Brooks, public information officer for Tullahoma City. “All other park open, green spaces, trails and recreational areas remain open. Parks does encourage residents to enjoy the outdoors. Residents are encouraged to continue use of the city’s Greenway, open areas at Frazier McEwen Park, the Sunrise Rotary Disc Golf Course and Jefferson Street Park.”

City parks and state parks have advised that they are seeing heavier than normal use.

“We want to encourage all visitors to consider using local parks first before travelling to other areas to minimize cross contamination and slowing the spread of COVID-19,” Brooks said.

Use these tips for visiting parks:

Stay local

Do not gather in groups of 10 or more

Social distance-stay six feet apart

If it’s crowded, don’t stay

Use the bathroom before you go. Public restrooms are high risk areas for touching surfaces.
