Hartman Park was built in 1964, and at 54 acres, has a community center, playground, restrooms, a playground, baseball field, basketball court, tennis court, swimming pool, a paved walking/jogging path, and a canoe launch. The land was originally the grounds of the Metro Convalescent Hospital, but was transferred to the Parks Department in 1964. It was named for Richard W. Hartman, a community leader who worked with the youth of Bordeaux. Metro Police has used a portion of the park for police training since 1983, which is the same year the community center opened. The swimming pool was opened in 1998. The park underwent a renovation in 2010. This park was the least maintained of any I've visited so far, with trash and debris everywhere, and features in ill repair. However, it does host a trailhead for the Whites Creek Greenway, which does redeem it quite a bit.
