Parks and Recreation Master Plan
Goodlettsville Parks and Rec is currently planning for the next 10 years through the development of a Master Plan. The Master Plan will inventory and analyze the City of Goodlettsville as it pertains to park and recreation facilities, programs, maintenance, and operations.
The plan will provide a 10 year vision for parks, recreation, open space and trails that will ensure the residents of Goodlettsville will continue to enjoy a high quality of life that is supported by the high-quality parks and recreational programs and facilities they desire.
Public input is a crucial to the planning process. Citizens may go to goodlettsvilleparksplan.com to take part in a survey until February 15, 2018. Other public input opportunities will be available throughout the process. Details on these opportunities can be found on the Parks Master Plan website.
Parks and Rec Employee featured as January's spotlight on employees: Our People. Serving Our People.
Through a series of short video clips, City of Goodlettsville employees will give insight into their departments and talk about what they do each day to serve the community and residents of Goodlettsville. In total there are 14 videos. A new video will be featured each month from November 2017 through December 2018. The goal of the project is to give the Goodlettsville community the inside scoop of its municipal government. We are people here to serve ‘our people’.
Goodlettsville is highlighting the Parks and Recreation Department with Jennifer Spillers as the employee spotlight for January.
Jennifer Spillers is a Recreation Supervisor in the Parks and Recreation Department and has been employed by the City of Goodlettsville for ten years in various roles.

The senior adult program is thriving under her leadership and has become a place of importance for many people in the community. Jennifer is also involved in many of the special events that the City conducts, most recently Halloween in the Park and the Tree Lighting Ceremony, as well as family events like the upcoming Mother Son Night and Daddy Daughter Dance. Jennifer is a member of Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association and will serve on its Board of Directors in 2018.
Jennifer understands the role of Parks and Recreation and the positive impact that she can make on people’s lives by providing recreational opportunities.
