Public meeting in May will highlight new park

On May 21, there will be a meeting to share plans for a 600-acre regional park located in Antioch.

The meeting will be held at an old red barn at 12969 Old Hickory Boulevard, about 1/4 mile from Interstate 24, near exit 62. The meeting will be 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

District 33 Council Member Sam Coleman will host the meeting along with Metro Parks Department representatives Rebecca Ratz and Jackie Jones.

Also in attendance will be Angela Goddard, the executive director of the Joe C. Davis Foundation, which made a financial contribution to the Parks Department, which allowed the purchase of the property.

The meeting will provide details and plans for the park and seek input as to what the public would like to see.

The day’s activities will include a food truck, hayrides, and other outdoor activities. The event will be free and family friendly.

The property is located along Old Hickory Boulevard, spreading north behind Cane Ridge High School and toward Old Franklin Road and Cane Ridge Elementary School.
