New Middle Fork Bottoms Recreation Area opens between Jackson, Three Way

Middle Fork

David Blackwood, director of the West Tennessee River Basin Authority cuts the ribbon on the Middle Fork Bottoms Recreation Area while local officials, including State Senator Ed Jackson, State Rep. Chris Todd and Three Way Mayor Larry Sanders, look on. The new recreation area will not only serve to mitigate flooding between the cities of Jackson and Three Way but also provide 850 acres of recreation and tourism. The first phase of the project is now complete with three more phases to be finished in coming years. The new park overs five miles of pave walking trails, 10 lakes, a channel for canoeing and kayaking, wetlands education, paddle boarding, and more.
