The City of Brentwood has developed a Trail System of multiple marked trails along paved surfaces in many of the City’s parks.
The trails are designed for the leisurely enjoyment of the beautiful outdoors as well as for the exercise enthusiast. They provide a great place to walk, jog run, bike and rollerblade. The trails vary in length and difficulty. They are incorporated around other areas of the park system to allow use while family or friends may be utilizing the area facilities including the YMCA, Williamson Recreation Center or Martin Center, for example.
The trails are color coded and a map can be found below or by visiting City hall on Maryland Way. The markers are color coded every 10th of a mile. Emergency call boxes are located along the trails. They are noted in the available map.
Additional trails are currently being developed for future expansion of the trail system and are noted on the map. Enjoy the City’s trail system and help preserve them for future generations.
Please be courteous of others on the trails. Always walk, skate or ride to the RIGHT. Pass to the LEFT. Give a shout when passing. Walkers and Joggers have the right of way. Skaters please yield to those on foot. Bikers please yield to all.

Primm Park is a 31 acre park that includes the historic Boiling Spring Academy (circa 1830) and five mounds from the Mound Builders circa 1200 A.D.), the last of prehistoric Native Americans to live in this area.
The park, designed to showcase both historic features, also connects, extends and acts as an entrance to the Brentwood Bikeway. The Little Harpeth River runs through the park.
Boiling Springs Academy originally opened as a private school in 1833, has undergone an extensive restoration. Tuition was originally $8 per semester (about 5 months). The school has two rooms, one upstairs and one on the main floor. Six schools in Brentwood participate in the Boiling Spring Academy Classroom Project. Third grade students come to Boiling Springs Academy dressed in period clothes loaned to them by the Historic Commission. They spend the day much like the children of the 1800’s, being taught by schoolmarms and using slates and slate pens during their lessons.
The Indian mounds are part of the ceremonial mounds built by the Native American Mound Builders between 900 and 1450 AD. They built ceremonial buildings and homes on top of the mounds and used one as a burial mound. The mound clearly visible today was likely home to the tribal chief. The mounds have been studied and researched and some of the artifacts are now part of the Smithsonian Institution.
