The new 1.2 acre pocket park replaces an old abandoned city alley not being utilized, and located on a historic railroad spur that encompasses a trail intersecting the City of Clarksville’s greenway system.

Rotary Park, a 111 acre park with 5 miles of walking, biking, and hiking trails, will have the addition of an ADA-accessible trail.
