“We started Art on the Park in 2010 as a way to deter vandalism and graffiti,” said Tina Boysha, Athletics Superintendent for Clarksville Parks and Recreation. “It’s become popular over the years, and we’ve seen some really amazing artwork from the community. This year is no different.”
The Heritage Park Skate Park will remain open during the painting.
