Brooks Park Playground
Brooks Park is getting a new playground! The City of Goodlettsville is building a new playground at Brooks Park in partnership with KABOOM, Mapco, and hopefully YOU! During a design day on February 15, children had the opportunity to draw their dream playspace, and those drawings were used as inspiration for the final design. The playground is slated to be installed during a community build day on April 27, 2023.
Fenway's Dog Park
Update: Fence installation is complete. Shade and benches have been ordered and will be delivered in February of 2023. The dog park park will remain open throughout the duration of this project. Portions of the dog park may close as construction progresses.
Goodlettsville Parks and Rec applied for a Dog Park Dash grant through the Boyd Foundation in the Spring of 2022. On September 26, 2022 the City of Goodlettsville was presented a $25,000 check, by the Boyd Foundation, to use for enhancements to its existing dog park, Fenway’s Park, located within Moss-Wright Park. In its final year, the Tennessee Dog Park Dash, funded by the Boyd Foundation, is an initiative that was launched in 2018 by Randy and Jenny Boyd with the Boyd Foundation, who pledged $3 million to build 100 dog parks across the state, with the goal of making Tennessee the most pet-friendly state in the nation. Enhancements will include expanded fencing areas for dogs to run and play and site amenities such as shade and additional benches. Work will begin in late Fall of 2022 for a Spring 2023 grand re-opening.

Peay Park Court Renovation
Update: Work on this project began in May of 2022 with the removal and setting of posts and sealing of the asphalt. Paving was complete in mid July. The final stage of the project is the coating/lining of the courts, installation of new fencing, and installation of nets and poles. Fencing is complete. A vendor has been selected for the coating and lining, which is scheduled to occur as weather permits (temperature is a factor). Lastly, the nets and poles (which have been purchased and are in our procession) will be installed.
