Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department has opened a new one-third mile section of the Clarksville Greenway.
The new section begins approximately 2.5 miles from the Pollard Road Trailhead and continues to the rail bridge abutment beside the Red River.
In addition, construction will begin soon on a new section of the Red River Trail that includes additional scenic walking areas and a canoe and kayak access behind businesses on Kraft Street.
This section of trail also will end at the rail bridge abutment on the south side of the Red River.
A grant request also has been made for construction of a new pedestrian bridge crossing the Red River to connect these two trails. This bridge will be significant from both a recreation and transportation standpoint.
Once built, a pedestrian or bicyclist will be able to start at the Tiny Town Road and Peachers Mill Road intersection in Northeast Clarksville and travel all the way to downtown without using roadways.
