Short Springs State Natural Area
2250 Short Springs Road
Short Springs is a 420-acre natural area located in Coffee County approximately three and a half miles northeast of Tullahoma. The natural area provides excellent contrast between the Highland Rim and Central Basin geology and vegetation. When descending along the Machine Falls trail, a visitor can observe exposed black Chattanooga shale at mid-slope, which is a formation that delineates the Central Basin from the Highland Rim. Thickets of mountain laurel grow on the upper slopes under a dry oak-hickory forest canopy that is characteristic of Highland Rim vegetation. The lower slopes and riparian areas along Bobo Creek support towering sycamore, buckeye, magnolia, beech, and tulip poplar trees with a rich shrub layer and herbaceous cover.
Short Springs is one of the very best spring wildflower locations in the state. In the spring, moist slopes are covered in trout lilies, Virginia bluebells, jack-in-the-pulpit, larkspur, and Dutchman's breeches. Large flowered trillium (Trillium grandiflora), southern red trillium (Trillium sulcatum), and barren strawberry (Waldsteinia fragarioides) are uncommon plants for Middle Tennessee that occur here. The natural area also supports two state-listed endangered plant species, Nestronia (Nestronia umbellula) and broad-leaved bunchflower (Melanthium latifolium).
This biological diversity is related to the rich forest slopes and ravines, low cascades, springs and waterfalls that support it. Scenic features like Machine Falls drops more than 60 feet and is nearly equal in length across. The Upper and Lower Busby Falls on Bobo Creek are two prominent cascading waterfalls that can be seen from overlooks on the Bobo Creek trail. The steep escarpment with its numerous wet weather seeps are particularly impressive during the moist winter and spring months. Water is a significant feature at Short Springs as it once was the water supply for Tullahoma before construction of Normandy Dam.

There are also two picnic pavilions and many other areas to picnic in the shade of the many trees.

Big Springs Avenue, behind Tullahoma High School
Originally used for Minor League Baseball in Athens/Decatur Alabama, the stadium was disassembled and moved to Tullahoma by Parks and Recreation Director Fred Grider, along with several volunteers, in 1961. The structure was reassembled at its current location and was named Municipal Stadium in 1962. Several years later the Stadium was renamed in honor of Fred Grider. The stadium has been host to a variety of events over the years and is now the home of the Tullahoma Wildcats High School Baseball Team, the Tullahoma Adult Baseball League, and the Tullahoma Regional Independence Day Celebration that attracts over 10,000 people from the surrounding area for the 4th of July.
103 NE Atlantic St
Located alongside the railroad tracks and our historic downtown, History Park opened in 2007, and provides an easily accessible place to picnic or relax in the downtown area. It features a 1964 L&N caboose purchased from the Tennessee Central Railway Museum by the Tullahoma Historic Preservation Society in 2000.
The original Tullahoma depot sat at this location until World War II. The caboose typifies the important part the railroad has played in the history of Tullahoma. It was responsible for the city's location in 1852 about midway between Nashville and Chattanooga and made Tullahoma an important railroad terminal.
