About Friends of Franklin Parks
The not-for-profit organization Friends of Franklin Parks was formed in 2011 to mobilize community resources to continually enhance the City of Franklin’s park system. In 2015, Friends embarked on a $1.3 million effort to construct a multi-purpose equestrian arena at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm. The new Tractor Supply Co. Arena is slated to open in April 2016, and will host numerous public events ranging from polo matches to concerts.For more information, please visit www.friendsoffranklinparks.org.
