Recreation Mission

The Rutherford County Conservation Board has sponsored a county-wide recreation program for the past 46 years. We feel it has served many needs throughout the county and has carried recreation to the communities we are serving.

With the cooperation of the Director of Rutherford County schools, the many principals of the the schools we are serving and community clubs that are working with us, the county program offers Summer & Winter Recreation; softball, Jr. Pro Football, and Jr. Pro Basketball leagues. Check your local recreation site for days and times in your community.



Our Summer Program

Welcome to Rutherford County Rec. We offer many recreational opportunities at sites throughout Rutherford county.

Ben Cates

Ben Cates served as County Recreation Director since its inception in 1972. Ben inspired us with his leadership, wisdom, guidance, and his wonderful sense of humor. Some of us still miss his 1983 Olds ("Ole Blue") that he bought new and is still driving. Thank you Mr. Cates for 46 great years!
