The Tullahoma Parks and Recreation Department oversees two community centers. D.W. Wilson Community Center has a water park, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, a fitness center and meeting rooms for the community’s use. C.D. Stamps is located on Jackson Street at the site of historical Davidson Academy and has a gymnasium, a game room, two meeting rooms and a fitness center.
Both facilities are managed by the Recreation Director, Kurt Glick, who is one of only fifty-seven parks and recreation professionals who is a certified Leisure Professional, the National Recreation and Parks Association’s highest level of certification. This is a national standard for managerial, administrative and executive parks and recreation professionals.
The city has 11 baseball and softball fields along with two miles of greenways and oversees 605 acres in 12 parks.
The latest addition to the parks system is a Rocket Playground, funded in part by the Tullahoma Rotary Clubs. Also, Tullahoma is one of four Tennessee cities to offer a certified Soap Box Derby competition and boasts one National Champion.
For golfers, Tullahoma is home to Lakewood Golf and Country Club and Arnold Air Force Base’s golf course (9 holes). Nearby, the Bear Trace at Tim’s Ford is a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course within 10 minutes of the city and the Willowbrook Golf Club is located in Coffee County.
