Walk with Me Tennessee“We congratulate Clarksville for qualifying as a ‘Walk with Me Tennessee’ community,” said Gerald Parish, Acting Director of the TDEC Division of Recreation Educational Services.  “This program was created to help communities maximize their existing outdoor resources and plan for future recreational infrastructure with the goal of increasing quality of life for residents.”

“Walk with Me Tennessee” is an assessment tool for cities and counties that focuses on a variety of aspects, including: planning, health and fitness opportunities, infrastructure, connecting community areas and safety.  It ranks the community’s walkability, and provides pertinent planning information to help communities increase their pedestrian friendliness.
