A large number of City of Franklin and Williamson County Parks & Recreation employees could be seen throughout Jim Warren park Friday morning inspecting the grounds for storm damage, and making sure the park is ready for visitors this weekend. Damaged vehicles from last night’s high winds was no longer apparent, as clean-up efforts were already complete.

See our storm damage photos.

The park shows few signs of visible damage, aside from roofing and flashing that had blown off the administration building. A scoreboard and other elements of the park damaged in the high winds Thursday night have already been removed or repaired. It is expected that City of Franklin and Parks and Recreation officials may have more to say later today.
