City of Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation has closed all Greenways until further notice. Low head dams and Greenways are dangerous when flooded due to unknown debris and other hazards.

The following Smyrna Parks are closed through at least Thursday: Rotary Soccer Park, Sharp Springs Park, and Paul Johns Neighborhood Park. Additionally, if you’re a runner/walker/biker, portions of the greenway are also closed.

Fire crews are being sent out to monitor areas that are notorious for flooding.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) continues to monitor weather conditions/alerts, water levels over roads, street closures, and river levels at both the east and west forks of the Stones River.

Levels at present indicate that we are still well below the 10-year flood level river stage. Murfreesboro will likely only experience localized flooding.

Remember to report flooded streets and malfunctioning drainage systems in the city limits to the Street Department by calling 615-893-4380. Please notify Rutherford County EMA of issues in the county (615-898-7764). If you find yourself in an emergency situation (such as a stalled car in high water) please call 9-1-1 immediately.
