Community Events

One of the Program Division’s favorite aspects of what we do is to create fun and engaging events for the residents of our community.  Nothing pleases us more than seeing our hard work and preparations culminate in families spending quality time having fun together, sharing smiles and laughter.  Our department is proud to say that we offer, on average, around 60 Community Events per year in all corners of Williamson County.  Annual favorites include Father & Daughter Dances, Touch-A-Truck, Egg Hunts, Breakfast with Santa, Pool Parties, Concerts in the Park and many more.

Upcoming Events:

Eclipse Viewing Party
Eclipse Viewing Party
Monday, August 21st 2017
Timberland Park
Located on the Natchez Trace Parkway Mile Marker 437.2

Join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity! The free party starts at noon with guided hikes, a bounce house, snow cones, moon rock painting and more.  The total eclipse will peak at 1:27 p.m., and the event will conclude at 3:00 p.m. Safety glasses will be provided for eclipse viewing but they are on a first-come first-served basis and supplies are limited. Please feel free to bring your own eclipse viewing glasses. Parking inside the gates of Timberland Park is limited. Parking will not be allowed on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Space is limited, so we need to know you are coming! Please register at, event # 10268.

The eclipse at Timberland will cover around 99% or more of the sun. While that means that only a very small portion of the sun will still shine around the moon, that small portion can still damage your eyes. Only use approved eclipse viewing equipment to avoid eye damage. If you have any questions about this event or eclipses in general, please call Timberland Park at
