Tower Park - Brentwood, TN...
One of the newest parks to the Brentwood, TN park system is Tower Park located in the shadows of the Historic WSM Radio Tower off Concord Road. This 47 acre park located on the banks on the Little Harpeth River was opened to the public in 2005. This park contains large meadows, multi-use fields, and walking and bike paths. Tower Park may serve as a connector route for a proposed bike/walking path between Granny White Park and Crockett Park.
Some little known facts about WSM and Tower Park:
Long before Brentwood, became a city (1969), the WSM tower was built (1932) mainly due to its central location geographically. The bedrock formed the perfect base to support this impressive structure.
The WSM tower at one time was the tallest transmitting tower in the United States (878 feet), and the 2nd tallest in the world. The Eiffel tower was taller.
The massive 2-1/2 cables that support the tower weigh 8,000 pounds each.
The small building at the base of the tower not only houses the transmitters, but also includes a bomb shelter and a direct link to the White House and the President of the US.
Tower Park is located across from the new Sports Complex. To reserve one of the sports fields, call the Brentwood Parks department at 615.370.3471.
