What are the opportunities for Franklin's Parks System?

A:

To me, our greatest opportunity in the Parks System is effectively deploying the funding received from parkland dedication fees to build, along side private partnerships & grants, a world class parks system that is unequaled for a City the size of Franklin. We are very well positioned to do this in Franklin and it is going to take forward thinking vision of Staff and elected leadership to create, manage and improve our Parks system throughout the City. 

I have had first hand experience working with Franklin's Parks System in a variety of ways. As one on the team of organizers of the Great Americana BBQ Festival at Harlinsdale, I have had the opportunity to interface with the wonderful and professional Parks Staff at the City. We really are blessed to have such amazing people working for our Parks Department. 

I have severed on the Friend's of Franklin Park's Harlinsdale Committee for a number of years now and it has been an incredible experience to see a private non-profit work hand in hand with the City to achieve incredible improvements to our Parks System.
