Mayor McMillan’s 2018 budget, approved in June by the Clarksville City Council, includes $460,000 to acquire a unique tract of land in the heart of Clarksville to be preserved as an Urban Wilderness.

The Wilderness would be on rugged land that lies between Madison Street and the Red River off of Tanglewood Drive. It includes dense vegetation, steep ravines and primitive trails.

During her budget presentation, Mayor McMillan said the goal of the Urban Wilderness project is to preserve and protect the unique property. The first step is bringing the land into City ownership, and then it will become part of a Clarksville Parks and Recreation master planning process, which will identify specific uses and where to provide access points and parking.
