Lee Powell to the Montgomery County Department of Parks and Recreation has expanded Rotary Park, and will be used to provide a series of campsites that will be reserved for use by area nonprofits.

Powell and Stacy Goodwin of the Montgomery County Department of Parks and Recreation while discussing the future of Rotary Park came to understand the need for a youth camping site on the south end of Clarksville as the City of Clarksville’s Billy Dunlop Park in North Clarksville has been the primary camping location for area Boy Scouts.
