  • Has the construction started on the new skate-park and pump track in Old Fort Park? When will the new addition be completed and will it be open by the end of the summer? 

  • We have not talked a lot about the mountain bike course inside Barfield Park, bring us up-to-date on how that has done since its opening and how long of a course is it? 

  • The planning of a new community park in the Blackman area, near Veterans Parkway and Shores Road continues. Give us updates on how the new venture will be laid out and what to expect.

  • Baseball,softball and soccer, three sports that seem to receive a lot of attention with lots of community involvement in the Murfreesboro area… are there any plans in place for any new fields? 

  • How has the new indoor soccer arena been received, now that it has been open for about a year?  

  • Any new extensions to the local Greenway trails?
