Summertime is a season for a variety of outdoor activities like hiking, canoeing, swimming and ziplining. All of these activities put you right in the heart of Tennessee’s wilderness and give you a new perspective on nature and landscape. Taking advantage of these fun pastimes not only exposes you to something new you may have never tried, but it’s a great way to see the beauty of Middle Tennessee in a whole new way.
Ziplining — While many summertime plans involve playing in nature, ziplining is a special activity that puts us right among the trees. Ziplining is always an exciting adventure and locations like Fontanel and Treetop Adventure Park offer exhilarating experiences. Though the Parke Company doesn’t build the zip lines, Parke employees can offer advice on proper tree care for both homeowners and companies looking to implement a zip line on their landscape on their commercial or residential properties.
Canoeing and Kayaking — Canoeing is a great activity during the hottest of summer days, and it’s a great way to see some of Middle Tennessee’s beautiful hills and trees. Nashville has a plethora of beautiful rivers. Get your feet wet and learn a little about nature! The Harpeth, Cumberland and Whites Creek are just a few of Middle Tennessee’s many rivers that allow canoeing and kayaking.
Hiking — If canoeing and ziplining aren’t really your thing, hiking is a great alternative! Many parks around the area offer hiking trails that expose visitors to the branches and beauty of Nashville. Shelby Bottoms or Percy Warner are just a couple parks to consider. The Parke Company works hard to preserve and care for the trees all around the area, and hiking through one of these trails will give you a great reason as to why they work so hard.
Summer is a great season to take advantage of all of these outdoor activities. Make sure to get out and see what Nashville’s trees and nature have to offer. It’ll be cold again before we know it! And if you’ve got trees or branches in your own landscape that look a little weary, call the Parke Company today for a tree care consultation.
