Winchester and Grundy County Receive State Funds for Park Projects

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) have announced that $26,501,705.74 has been awarded to 32 communities across Tennessee for local parks and recreation projects as the Governor travels statewide touting conservation investments. 

In the coming years, the Lee administration is committed to furthering the state’s conservation strategy by building on the recommendations of public and private stakeholders across Tennessee. The agenda’s goals include exploring opportunities to improve water infrastructure and quality, supporting natural areas, expanding safe nuclear energy production, and more.

Grundy County

$1,945,000 has been awarded to Grundy County for the creation of a new park – Miracle on the Mountain Play Outside Park, an approx. 20,600 sq. ft. inclusive playground, to be located on State Route 108 in Coalmont. The project includes the land acquisition of 23.74 acres; poured-in-place safety surfacing/artificial turf; 4’ tall decorative metal fence; grading; parking lot (approx. 62’ x 100’); retaining wall (approx. 560 linear feet); and a driveway (approx. 250 linear feet).

“This new park is an incredible win for Grundy County,” said State Rep. Rush Bricken, R-Tullahoma. “Through TDEC’s grant, we will be able to enjoy our city and county to the fullest while bringing our community closer to each other and the outdoors than ever before.” 

“Parks are a very important part of our communities,” said State Sen. Janice Bowling, R-Tullahoma. “I am very pleased these funds are available to improve our local parks, which serve as wonderful outdoor spaces for our residents, improve the quality of life for our citizens, and promote outdoor activity. I congratulate our local officials who were instrumental in helping secure these funds.”

City of Winchester

$475,000 has been awarded to the City of Winchester for improvements at City Park. The project includes lighting for the ball fields and ADA-compliant restrooms.

“These improvements to our ball fields will provide more opportunities for children to be active and have fun,” said State Rep. Iris Rudder, R-Winchester. “These upgrades will help ensure that even more people can continue to enjoy the wonderful amenities that we have right here in Winchester. I appreciate the dedicated work of everyone involved in securing this substantial investment for our community, and I look forward to seeing these projects completed.”

“Parks are a very important part of our communities,” said State Sen. Janice Bowling, R-Tullahoma. “I am very pleased these funds are available to improve our local parks, which serve as wonderful outdoor spaces for our residents, improve the quality of life for our citizens, and promote outdoor activity. I congratulate our local officials who were instrumental in helping secure these funds.”
