The City of Collegedale Parks and Recreation mission is to provide places, avenues and recreational opportunities for all people to gather, celebrate, learn and engage in activities that promote health, well-being, community, and the environment. These opportunities are evolving with the ever growing needs of our area. Collegedale residents and visitors enjoy parks, greenways, playgrounds, outdoor recreation and leisure activities year round. Our natural surroundings create artistic beauty for all seasons. We are proud to be recognized as a Healthier Tennessee community. This recognition is part of the Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness. Only a few cities in the state have earned this designation. Join the Collegedale Inspires Healthy Living Facebook page to stay up to date on health and wellness resources as part of this statewide initiative. Be sure to visit “Backyard Tourist” and make plans to go on a new adventure, try something new, and go play.

Things to do


Outdoor Classroom Library Kids Club

What do you see when you look at the moon? Do you see a man, a face, half of a paper plate? How far away is the moon? According to Big Nutbrown Hare (from the book, Guess How Much I Love You), “very far.” February is rare this year in that we will not see a full moon this month. Instead, March will have two full moons. We have heard the saying, “once in a Blue Moon” which happens every 3 ½ years. However, a “No-moon” month only happens every 19 years! Come learn facts and phases of the moon.
