Welcome to Tullahoma!


The City of Tullahoma is doing its part to serve and respond effectively to the needs of the community. Like our community, we all must make changes that will help get us back to normal as soon as possible. Community centers, public lobbies and walk-in service areas will remain closed to the public until April 27, 2020. All City of Tullahoma departments remain fully operational and ready to assist you with all public services.

Tullahoma police and fire departments continue to operate at full capacity. If you have an emergency, dial 911.

We have postponed public meetings, and the City is planning accommodations for public participation and viewing through remote capabilities. Closures include: all public walk-in services or lobbies, including the lobby of the fire halls, City Hall, public works recycling and garbage transfer facility, the Tullahoma Animal Shelter and the lobby of Planning and Codes. The City will release more information, so please check our Facebook page or Tullahomatn.gov for future releases.

Tullahoma Parks and Recreation has closed the community centers, park restrooms, pavilions and playgrounds. Waggoner Park, including the Dog Park at Waggoner Park, and Johnson Lane Soccer Complex are closed to the public at this time. Park restrooms, pavilions, and playgrounds are closed. These areas contain many common surfaces that can be a source of contamination. All other park open, green spaces, trails, and recreational areas remain open. Parks does encourage residents to enjoy the outdoors. Residents are encouraged to continue use of the City’s Greenway, open areas at Frazier McEwen Park, the Sunrise Rotary Disc Golf Course and Jefferson Street Park.


City parks and state parks have advised that they are seeing heavier than normal use. We want to encourage all visitors to consider using local parks first before traveling to other areas to minimize cross contamination and slowing the spread of COVID-19.


Use these tips for visiting parks:

- Stay local
- Do not gather in groups of 10 or more
- Social distance-stay six feet apart
- If it’s crowded, don’t stay
- Use the bathroom before you go. Public restrooms are high risk areas for touching surfaces.


Remember: The State Division of Natural Areas has closed Short Spring Natural Area. In the interest of public health, Short Springs State Natural is closed to the public. This closure will last until April 10th, at which time staff will re-evaluate the situation. This is being done because it is attracting people from all over the an eighty plus mile radius. Please remember to limit travel and avoid crowded parks and trails.

Tullahoma has a rich heritage in aerospace and aviation and is home to the world’s most advanced flight testing center in the world.  As the medical and retail hub for five counties in the region, it offers the best in quality healthcare and abundant shopping and dining experiences.  Attractions such as Jack Daniels, George Dickel, and the Beechcraft Heritage Museum are excellent places to visit, but making your home in a community with a top rated school system make it ideal to live.  The arts and a commitment to greenspace with numerous parks and greenways make it a great place to enjoy living.

The mission of Tullahoma Parks and Recreation is to provide vibrant public spaces and inclusive programs, delivered with visionary leadership and caring staff, that engage the individual and strengthen the quality of life of our community. Come see what Tullahoma Parks has to offer by visiting our flagship community Center, D.W. Wilson Center, at 501 N. Collins Street.
