Bailey brings new life to old park
Boy Scout Nathan Bailey can relax and enjoy the fact his Eagle Scout project is behind him, literally. He renovated the park on Old Shellsford Road.
Boy Scout Nathan Bailey has completed his Eagle Scout project by breathing new life into an old park on Old Shellsford Road. The park was established almost four decades ago by Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency next to Collins River, accessed by Hot Mix Road. Just east of McMinnville, the river absorbs is key tributary, Barren Fork, and is a popular spot for kayakers who enter the water there and float to VFW. “We’ve used the park for the past five years we’ve lived here,” said Bailey.
