LEBANON, TENN., The promotion of wellness and recreation for Lebanon’s residents is a major focus for the City of Lebanon. At no other time has that rang truer. As for most, the last few months have been filled with anxiety and uncertainty.
What is certain, though, is that the City of Lebanon, in a public/private relationship with Goodall Homes, is moving forward with its promise to bring wellness and recreation to Lebanon’s Ward Six. Over the last several months, city officials, Mayor Bernie Ash, Council Person Jeni Lind Brinkman, Ragan Smith & Associates, and Goodall Homes have been tirelessly working to bring this concept to reality.
“As we work to improve quality of life amenities for City of Lebanon citizens, we continue to pursue all avenues to create a live, work and play environment,” said Mayor Ash. “I am looking forward to seeing children, families and our seniors enjoying another leisure opportunity in our community.”
With a focus on community connection, as the park will be constructed adjacent to Goodall Home’s newest community, The Preserve, the site amenities are numerous and speak to a wide array of tastes. From extensive walking trails and open spaces to covered pavilions and an expansive playground, the approximate 16-acre property will be a welcome recreational haven for Lebanon’s western corridor residents.
“Goodall Homes has been serving Lebanon residents for decades through the development of neighborhoods,” said Chris O’Neal, Goodall Homes’ chief business development officer. “We are thrilled to continue our investment in this great and prosperous community by partnering with the city to build a wonderful public amenity for residents to enjoy for years to come.”
In order to adhere to current CDC restrictions with social distancing brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, citizens may view the planned park digitally on the City of Lebanon website at www.lebanontn.org/citypark as well as submit questions, comments and/or feedback directly on the website. “I am very excited to see this public/private partnership continue to move forward and bring parks and recreation amenities to Ward Six. It is very important to me to allow the community to be a part of this process. Given the requirements for social distancing during this time, I believe access to the plans on the city website will help us bring this plan to the community for their input,” stated Jeni Lind Brinkman, Ward Six Councilwoman.
Final site design, provided by Goodall Homes and partner Ragan Smith & Associates, is underway with an anticipated groundbreaking in early June. Park completion is anticipated to occur by the end of September, as the City of Lebanon and Goodall Homes feel a strong push and need to get this amazing community amenity open so that residents can enjoy the beautiful Fall weather!
“Goodall Homes is proud to partner with the City of Lebanon as they continue to provide residents with the great quality of life choices that parks like this provide,” said Daniel Stumpf, division president of Goodall Homes Nashville South Division.
