Thompson's Station buys 100+ acres of green space

Thompson's Station officials this week wrapped up their purchase of more than 100 acres of undeveloped land north of the city. The plan is to leave the property as is for now but to take a Central Park-like approach to its future development.

“The land lends itself to connectivity through pedestrian and bicycle trails, preservation of historic and natural assets — including a portion of the Civil War battlefield — equine and agricultural uses, and various other passive recreation opportunities,” he said. “There are a lot of possibilities here, a lot of avenues through which this property can help realize the town's broader parks and open space vision.”
