About Parks & Recreation

Special Announcement: COVID-19

At Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation, we value our loyal and committed Sports*Com and Patterson Park facility pass holders. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the city is placing a temporary hold on all passes.

We hope to see you back at the centers as soon as we can reopen. Those with monthly or yearly passes will have them extended once we reopen to make up for any time the facility has been closed.

We will re-evaluate the situation at the end of April, or sooner if possible. We plan to keep you informed as more information becomes available. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in the facilities again soon.
