Upgrades Planned for Pinkerton Park

Pinkerton Park

The pavilion at Tinkerbell, Pinkerton Park is a Leadership Franklin Class of 2017-2018 community improvement project.

Five upgrades are planned, including:

  • ADA compliant access to the Pavilion
  • a charging bar for electronics
  • concrete ping pong table
  • shade sails
  • benches for park goers

“Our passion and goal is to provide the next generation an area that they can enjoy while keeping an eye on their children,” said Joni Cole from the Leadership Franklin project team spearheading this initiative. There will also be a charging station so folks can be “connected” as well as another form of fun and activity for all ages with the ping pong table. This area will be beautifully landscaped with benches that will be very inviting for all ages.

The Fundraising goal is $20,000 and the Leadership Franklin class is halfway there. Friends of Franklin Parks made a $5,000 donation to sponsor the Ping-Pong table.

For those who would like to be a sponsor of this pavilion contact the Friends of Franklin Park at 615-674-5388, or you can make a donation on the project website here. 

Or if you are interested in donating an amount different than the options on the website, please contact the Friends of Franklin Parks directly, or simply mail a check to the Friends of Franklin Parks at PO Box 549, Franklin TN 37065.
