Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department earns recognition for conserving resources and reducing waste.

“I am very proud of the Parks and Recreation department for the strides they’ve made to be more eco friendly and I believe the entire City is focused on using best practices to promote the ultimate in environmental stewardship,” said Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan.

After receiving a Bronze status in 2016, the Clarksville Parks and Recreation department completed a program recertification to continue their going-green efforts.

In order to achieve a Gold recognition, the department initiated several improvements to already existing green practices that included installing new energy efficient windows, increasing recycling efforts at recreational facilities, replacing light displays with LED lighting, removing personal trash cans at desks and replacing with recycle bins, reducing paper use by encouraging online registration and by hosting homesteading programs for the public.

“So much of what we do at the Clarksville Parks and Recreation department relies on the environment,” said Jennifer Letourneau, Clarksville Parks and Recreation Director. “Our Greenways, Blueways, athletic fields, parks, forestry division and much more depend on the health of the land around us. It only makes sense that our department should be at the forefront of taking care of it.”
