Clarksville’s Parks and Recreation Department to hold Public Involvement Workshop January 24th


Clarksville Parks and RecreationClarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville’s Parks and Recreation department will hold a Public Involvement Workshop, Thursday, January 24th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the Parks and Recreation Main office for residents to learn more about two potential projects identified in the 1999 Greenways Master Plan, which will complete a major section of the city’s riverside pedestrian trail development initiative.

The Red River East Trail is a phased, multi-modal (hiking/biking) trail segment. Phase I is a 6,000 foot long, ten foot wide, east-west multimodal trail that generally follows a 3,400 foot long reach of the Red River that runs eastward from US Highway 41A. It then continues in a northeasterly direction from the far side of the river at the site of an historic railroad river crossing.

It will connect with the current terminus of a completed greenway trail the city constructed on an abandoned rail bed that overlooks several miles of the scenic Red River Valley.

Phase II (future project) will consist of a 290 foot long pedestrian bridge that will cross the Red River at the site of a former railroad bridge and which would provide the connection for the two trail segments and thus complete the Red River East greenway by connecting the southern terminus of the Red River overlook greenway trail.

The Fort Defiance Connector Trail is a multi-modal (hiking/biking) 2,000 foot long, ten foot wide, east-west multimodal trail segment that will follow the bluff overlooking the Cumberland River from the western boundary of the Fort Defiance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center downstream to Trice’s Landing Park.

It will provide a completing segment of greenway by connecting the western terminus of the initial Fort Defiance trail (at the Civil War Park and Interpretive Center) to a final western terminus/trailhead at Trice’s Landing.

This continuation trail segment will lie on an existing, unpaved and infrequently used service “road” which parallels a transmission line for the Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (CEMC).
