Improvement Projects

We understand how important our facilities, parks, and trails are and we work hard to develop improvement projects to satisfy the needs and wants of our community..

Red River East

Construction for the new trail off of Kraft Street was completed in Spring 2021. The trail begins where the North Extension of the Riverwalk ends and continues approximately a quarter mile further up the Red River behind businesses on Kraft Street. Amenities include parking and canoe and kayak access. This new trailhead connects to the new APSU greenway.

Red River Pedestrian Bridge

This fully-funded project is currently underway. Construction will begin in early 2022. The pedestrian bridge will connect the existing north greenway system to the downtown Cumberland Riverwalk, APSU Greenway, and Upland Trails for a combined nine miles of trails.


Sherwood Forest Park playground is scheduled for replacement. Public input was sought in November 2021. Work is scheduled to be complete by Summer 2022

coy lacy park: Playground Replacement

Coy Lacy Park is home to one of our City's oldest playgrounds. The playground was installed in 1994 and has reached the end of its life cycle.  The Parks and Recreation Department would like to seek input from the local neighborhood in regards to what equipment they would like to see in their new playground. Please fill out the survey link so we can bring this great new amenity to your neighborhood. 

Your feedback from this short survey will help us develop a plan. This information is helpful to ensure the playground equipment is appropriate for the ages and needs of children in the neighborhood. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office at (931) 645-7476 or

The survey is open until February 14, 2022.
