Harlinsdale Farm Park
Harlinsdale Farm consists of approximately 200 acres located in north Franklin. The topography gently rolls from Franklin Road, along the east property line, down to the Harpeth River, which forms the west property line, and to Spencer Creek, which runs along the northern boundary. The farm is bordered by residential development along its southern edge. Approximately 1/3 of the site is in the 100-year floodplain of the Harpeth River, which floods three to four times per year. Taking all of these things into consideration, the design team developed a plan that could turn the farm into a tourist destination for not only the equestrian community, but the population at large. The visionary idea addresses the need to expand the Visitor Center and parking requirement off site, potential for a museum, and various improvements that require as little construction and disruption of the farm as possible.
