BATEY PROPERTY

Located near the four-way stop sign at the corner of Indian Lake Road and East Drive these prime acres are ideal for a park.

Batey Farm

Consisting of two parcels totaling eighty-two-plus acres, it is the only large tract of land remaining undeveloped on the peninsula. Recently, a locally owned real estate developer purchased it for sale to a subdivision development group.

Almost everyone on the peninsula seem against the land being developed into a subdivision and are considering purchase of the property

Maintaining bike routes throughout Sumner County is a priority for Bike 'n Walk Hendersonville.  At times the official TN State Bike Routes have debris which makes them unsafe.  Please contact us about trouble spots with specific locations and photographs and we will forward that information to TDOT.  We will add your report and confirm status on our "TO DO" list.
