Parks & Recreation


In response to the COVID-19 situation and based on the updated recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Bristol Tennessee Parks & Recreation is asking community members to practice social distancing in the parks and on the trails. Please limit groups to no more than 10 people and stay at least six feet away from each other. 

All Bristol Tennessee Parks & Recreation spring activities are canceled until further notice. These Spring activities include, but not limited to: All Youth/Adult Sports Leagues, Tournaments, Practices, Rentals, Senior Programs, Special Events & Park Shelter Rentals. 

The current status of available spring programs is subject to change based on this quickly evolving health crisis. The Bristol Tennessee Parks & Recreation Department will be issuing full refunds within the next several weeks. Your patience and understanding during this time are appreciated.


Our Mission is to provide the best in municipal services. We exist to provide healthy and diverse recreational opportunities through programs, events, parks, and natural areas, for all ages and abilities, ensuring that the City of Bristol, Tennessee is a desirable place to live and play.
