Temporary Closure of Wade Bourne Nature Center

July 28, 2021 - MoCo Gov.

The Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Department has closed the Wade Bourne Nature Center due to a failure with the HVAC system. The decision was made this afternoon after Director of Parks and Recreation Jerry Allbert received notification that the system could be out of service for up to seven days.

“The temperatures are just too high for us to keep the Nature Center open to the public. However, all other outside areas of Rotary Park, such as the trails, playground, pavilions, horseshoe pits, and disc golf, are open. We appreciate the community’s patience and will open the Nature Center as soon as we can,” said Allbert.

The Wade Bourne Nature Center offers an interactive area for kids and adults to learn about the wildlife indigenous to Montgomery County as well as information about the legacy of nationally recognized journalist and conservationist, Wade Bourne.

Expect an increase in large truck traffic around event center site beginning July 7

July 06, 2021 - MoCo Gov.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TN – Beginning July 7, there will be an increased number of large delivery trucks going in and out of the downtown event center site. The periodic shipments are expected through the end of 2021.

“Deliveries will not be an everyday occurrence but there will be regular drop-offs throughout the year. We felt it was important to share this information with the public since it may have occasional effects on the flow of traffic,” said Jordan Wyman, Senior Vice President of Commonwealth Development Group, Inc.

Trucks will be directed to approach the site by turning onto Jefferson Street from Riverside Drive and then right onto First Street and into the site. The drivers will depart the construction site by turning right onto Main Street then onto Riverside Drive.

The steel frame for the event center is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year.
