Jim Warren Park is a 58-acre active park in Franklin, TN. It is a beautiful park with a ton of great amenities! It is the home of the Franklin Baseball Club and Franklin Cowboys youth organizations, has 2 pavilions (1 enclosed) with electric outlets and overhead lights, 12 lighted baseball fields, 4 football fields, 2 multi-purpose fields, 2 playgrounds, 8 tennis courts, 16,000 sq ft skatepark, 1 basketball court, catch and release pond, multiple restrooms and water fountains (even a vending machine and concession stands) and a great walking/running path where you can get in about 2.7 miles without repeating anything.
The path is mainly flat with a total ascent of 44 ft. The path takes you around and through the entire park. Most of the path takes you on the border of the park underneath a great treeline which is great for shade and the other part takes you through some of the parking areas by and around the different fields, and a small section even takes you around a 1/4 mile track!
There are several different areas where you can park but if you want to avoid game day parking, the main entrance to the park by the front playground off of 96 is located at 705 Boyd Mill Avenue, Franklin, TN 37064. You can park by the pavilion and will have a great view of the pond! Follow the path around the pond and by the treeline, around the skate park and across Boyd Mill Ave. Then you can continue down Boyd Mill Ave and turn left on Twin Oaks Drive. You will enter back into the park by the track and can do a loop if you desire! You will now follow the treeline around the back of the park and behind the fields before looping around in front of the enclosed pavilion and through a small portion of a parking lot before getting back on the path. You will pass by a few more fields before crossing back over Boyd Mill Ave and through the field to get back to the parking lot.
You can add on a lot more mileage if the parking lots are empty and you want to explore around the fields a little bit more. You can also add on by running through any of the connecting neighborhoods or the Williamson County Soccer Outdoor Complex.
This is a great place to run or walk and take your kids or your dogs or just yourself!

I am a food loving, activity seeking health coach who resides in Franklin, TN with my husband and two sweet dogs (Lola & Penny).
I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
