Today Friends of Franklin Parks, the City of Franklin Parks, and the Chestnut Bend Neighborhood HOA cut a ribbon unveiling new trails signage and a trail map that will soon connect to The Park at Harlinsdale Farm. The trail starts at Bicentennial Park and meanders through the Chestnut Bend neighborhood. In 2023 a bridge will be built over the Harpeth River, joining the trail to The Park at Harlinsdale Farm. Once connected to the new bridge, the trailhead will allow for pedestrian connections from Downtown Franklin to Cool Springs via sidewalks and bike trails. This trail extension adds approximately one mile to the Franklin Trail system and will also connect Bicentennial Park to The Park at Harlinsdale Farm. New mile markers and signs with the Franklin Trails logo have recently been installed, thanks to the City’s Parks Department.
