Timberland Park Eclipse Viewing Party
Join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity! On August 21, 2017 a near total eclipse will be happening over the skies of Timberland Park. 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 www.wcparksandrec.com, 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 615-232-4154.Timberland Park is located at mile marker 437.2 on the historic Natchez Trace Parkway, south of the Highway 96 entrance and iconic bridge.
