New Archery Range Dedicated at Williamson County Ag Expo Park
NASHVILLE --- A new archery range adjacent to the Williamson County Ag Expo Park has been dedicated that will serve Franklin and the southern area of Williamson County.
The new range is now operational and was constructed in a partnership between the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and Williamson County. The range is located outside above the main area. Officials from the TWRA, Williamson County, including Mayor Rogers Anderson, and the Ag Expo Park were present at the dedication.
Therange features 10 stations, ranging in distance from 10 to 60 yards. The range will be open during daylight hours, free of charge year-round, with the exception of two weeks in the summer when the Williamson County Fair is held at the site.
Since its completion in 2001, Ag Expo Park has become a popular destination for many local, regional, and national events, including the annual Williamson County Fair. It is located at I-65 and Peytonsville Road at Exit 61.
