Melinda Tate with the Murfreesboro Parks and Rec. Department told WGNS that the Greenway extension into Barfield Park is on the drawing board.
The extension will utilize a bridge that was once part of Barfield Crescent Road prior to the construction of Veterans Parkway. The trail will cross over that bridge and enter into Barfield Park.
The Stones River Greenway extension follows the West Fork of the Stones River from Old Fort Park to Barfield Crescent Park and includes four phases. Phases 1, 2, and 3 are complete. The remaining section of the trail starts at the termination point of Phase 3 on Barfield Road and extends the trail approximately three miles to Barfield Crescent Park. The trail will include a bridge connection to the east side of the river and a small trailhead at Southridge Subdivision.
