Harpeth River State Park

Harpeth River Go Green

Harpeth River State Park has completed the Silver Recognition Level of the TN State Parks Go Green With Us Initiative and Guidelines. The guidelines include multiple areas of environmental sustainability including education and outreach, water conservation, energy efficiency, waste and recycling and much more. Congrats to this park for going above and beyond to be excellent stewards of our natural resources.



The mission of the Tennessee State Parks Go Green With Us program is to preserve and protect our state parks through sustainable park operations, resource conservation, and recycling. Program components cover a diverse array of initiatives, including energy and water conservation through equipment and operations upgrades, recycling programs, projects to enhance ecosystem health, and erosion control, among many others.

  • Harpeth River State Park helps keep the river ecosystem clean by conducting controlled burns, encouraging growth of native grasses and vegetation.
  • Staff and the Friends of Harpeth River State Park host invasive plant removal and volunteer litter pickup events.
