CITY OF LEBANON HOSTED CAIRO BEND PARK DEED CEREMONY
 
The City of Lebanon hosted a ceremony to formally accept the Deed of Trust Agreement for the Cairo Bend Park in Lebanon’s western corridor on Wednesday, September 2nd, at the park on Cairo Bend Road near U.S. Highway 70.
 
“We are thrilled with the progress that we have seen with Cairo Bend Park and are excited to officially accept this park deed,” said Mayor Bernie Ash. “Projects like these improve the quality of life for our residents and are important in helping foster more unified communities.”
 
Cairo Bend Park is on 16 acres of land that was proposed to be donated by Goodall Homes, one of Tennessee’s largest home builders, in October 2019. The City of Lebanon is in a public-private partnership with Goodall Homes which led the design and development efforts of this park. Goodall will be performing all site work and infrastructure, as well as installing the park’s amenities.
 
“Goodall Homes is proud to partner with the City of Lebanon as they continue to provide residents with the great quality of life choices that parks like this provide.”  said Daniel Stumpf, Division President of Goodall Homes Nashville South Division.
 
“Cairo Bend Park has been thoughtfully designed to fulfill our promise to bring additional opportunities for recreation and wellness to the area,” said Lebanon’s Ward Six City Councilor, Jeni Lind Brinkman. “Its location in the western corridor will encourage increased development, residential growth and community connection for residents of Ward Six.”
 
“Goodall Homes has been serving Lebanon residents for decades through the development of neighborhoods,” said Chris O’Neal, Goodall Homes’ Chief Business Development Officer. “We are thrilled to continue our investment in this great and prosperous community by partnering with the City to build a wonderful public amenity for residents to enjoy for years to come.”
 
The amenities for the first park located in Ward Six will include walking trails, a playground, open green space, covered pavilions, public restrooms and nature areas. Goodall Homes and Ragan Smith & Associates broke ground on the adjacent subdivision in early June. The actual park construction will commence sometime this fall and the anticipated completion date is early Spring 2021.
