The director of the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department, Gordon Hampton, is set to speak at the Nolensville Area Business Council luncheon on Thursday, April 16, hosted by the Williamson Chamber. Hampton will present family health, wellness, entertainment and recreational opportunities provided by the department for residents and business owners.
Hampton has more than 34 years in the field of parks and recreation, including 21 years of service with the Williamson County parks department. He assumed the parks director position in February after being the deputy director for the past two years. Hampton replaced Director Doug Hood, who had served in the role for more than two decades.
Before coming to Williamson County, Hampton spent nine years with the Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation Department and later served as the director of the McKendree Christian Life Center in downtown Nashville.
A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Hampton graduated from David Lipscomb University with a degree in public administration.
The 11:30 a.m. luncheon, which costs $15, will be held at the recently opened Williamson County Recreation Complex at Nolensville, located at 7250 Nolensville Road. Williamson Medical Center is the presenting sponsor. Catering will be provided by Amico’s New York Pizza & Italian Restaurant.
