Preservation Park

This 200 acre park is the newest addition to Thompson's Station.  Formerly a local grazing pasture, this property was once part of the Battle of Thompson's Station, a noteworthy confederate victory in the Civil War. 

There is a park Master Plan currently under review by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.

Location: Going west on Thompson's Station Rd W., past Town Hall and the red caboose, 100 yards past the train tracks on the right is the southwest corner of the park and parking lot.

Preservation Park, aptly named in pursuit to preserve a cultural and historical heritage that can be enjoyed for generations to come, is roughly 200 acres and situated in the middle of Thompson’s Station.  The majority of the parkland is maintained in a land trust with the State of Tennessee to ensure its protection.  Not only did the Town wish to pursue this preservation of our heritage, but also intended to implement the vision of providing a regional greenway that would provide healthy opportunities for the community to engage with nature.  Preservation Park is predominantly in a natural state and offers some of the best natural beauty in the region with trails that meander through the park with magnificent views.  Preservation Park is an opportunity for the residents to engage with nature and the greenway developed throughout the park provides the backbone for an entire trail system that will link parkland with residents and more.  As the Town works to develop the full master plan for the park, additional resources will be provided to educate the public and provide an amenity that is accessible to all leaving a lasting legacy protecting our natural, cultural and historical resources.
