Outdoor Sports and Activities for Spring!
By: | 03.19.21

Spring has sprung in the Upper Cumberland which means warmer days and more opportunities to get outside and enjoy everything nature has to offer! After a year of quarantine, it’s important to get out, stretch those legs and get active! There’s no better place to do that than the Upper Cumberland!

No matter the age, staying active is important!


1. Play frisbee golf or take a walk at Cane Creek Park!

Paddleboats, kayaks and canoes, oh my! From gliding on the pond to taking on 18 holes of disc golf, Cane Creek Park is an ideal location for anyone looking for outdoor activity. And even Fido can join! Pets are also allowed in Cane Creek with expected adherence to the City of Cookeville’s leash law.

Pricing and park hour information available here:

2. Join a slow-pitch softball team!

The Cane Creek Sportsplex is offering Spring Softball for both Adult Church League and Adult Co-Ed Recreation League! Last day for standard registration is Friday, March 26, 2021.
