The property located at 1050 Donelson Ave, Old Hickory, TN 37138 was officially transferred to the Metro Government of Nashville and Davidson County in the Summer of 2011. The 12 acre site is currently home to the Old Hickory Community Center and various remnants of the Old Hickory Utility District’s water treatment provisions.
Metro Water Services immediately sought to bypass the out dated OHUD facilities and began their demolition as soon as it was feasible. Metro Parks has pretty much been operating the Community Center as it had previously been operated by the City of Old Hickory.
In 2017 the County wide Parks and Greenways master plan, Plan to Play, identified the Old Hickory Community Center as in need of some fundamental renovations and upgrades. In January 2018 the preliminary planning process for a new Regional Center officially began with technical assessments of the existing facilities.
The consulting team of Collier Engineering, EOA Architects, EMC Structural Engineering, and Power Management Company has been retained to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the existing conditions and recommendations for future improvements.
