Friends of Warner Parks dedicates itself to the preservation, protection, and stewardship of Percy and Edwin Warner Parks. It works to protect the natural and historical integrity of the area by supporting appropriate recreational activities, maintaining and enhancing its features, and promoting programs that inspire appreciation and conservation of the Parks.
Friends is a 501(c)3 organization.
Metro Parks and local mountain biking organization SORBA Mid TN have teamed up with builder Singletrack Trails to construct a first-class trail network in Percy Warner Park.
Located in the northwest corner of the Park, the system boasts nine miles of trails that feature varying levels of difficulty. Currently, the trails are accessible from a temporary parking lot and trailhead off of Forrest Park Drive. Map
Two permanent trailheads and a large parking lot are still under construction. IMBA-SORBA Mid TN will handle maintenance and volunteer projects related to the trails and will also monitor conditions. For additional information, visit SORBA Mid TN or call Neel Deshpande at 615/429-3549. Happy riding!
Imagine an interactive guide for the Warner Parks that fits in the palm of your hand. You could check your location on a hiking trail, find the nearest bathroom, learn about flora and fauna around you, or find out about upcoming events. We are thrilled to announce that all this is now possible—thanks to the Warner Parks Natural Areas iPhone and Android apps!
Funded by Friends of Warner Parks, the Natural Areas app is available for free download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play (click HERE). The centerpiece of the Natural Areas app is an interactive map that can link with a smartphone’s internal GPS. The map highlights Warner Parks’ trails, roads and facilities, and can display your real-time location at any point within the Parks.
BDY Environmental, LLC built the app along with collaborative input from Metro Nashville Parks, the Warner Park Nature Center and Friends of Warner Parks. It is the first app of its kind for Metro Parks, designed to better connect people to the city’s open spaces. While this version of the application focuses on the Warner Parks, future versions will include similar information for the other Natural Area Parks within the Metro Parks system.
We hope you find this a helpful tool to enhance your Warner Parks experience!
