Clarksville, TN – The weekly Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department Recreation Report provides Clarksvillians with a glimpse at the activities and events that are available from the Parks and Recreation Department for them to enjoy together as a family.
This weeks highlights include: Adopt-a-Plots Available, Free Sports Tournaments, Independence Day Celebration, Independence Day Closures, and Youth Co-Ed Flag Football.
Have you ever driven down the road and wondered how to sign up for one of the plots of land along the road? Many “Adopt-a-Plots” are open to adopt by any group, family, organization or individual!
Caring for an Adopt-a-Plot is easy! Adoptees must submit a signed contract, species list and design to the City Forester and are responsible for the weekly maintenance and purchase of supplies. The City Forester can provide mulch as available and any training or assistance needed.
The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department will provide a sign for the plot to show everyone who has adopted that particular area.
