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!
