A BLAST FROM THE PAST!


We hope you have a blast running in the 1st Annual Bunker Run, sponsored by the Hamilton Family YMCA and Memorial Hospital. This 5 mile course runs through Enterprise South Nature Park, which is situated on 2,800 wooded acres previously part of the Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant property.  The plant was built between 1941 and 1942 to manufacture explosives for American solciers in World War II.  The plant was shut down after the war, but reopened during the Korean War.  It was again places into standby status in 1957. During the peak of operations (1967-1969) it produced 30 million pounds of TNT per month.
The porperty's heritage has been presereved in the concrete magazines used to store explosives during the days TNT was manufactured on the property.  Today, the Park offers miles of walking paths, bicycle paths and off-road biking trails.  There are areas for picnics and a small lake that attracts deer, turkeys and other park inhabitants giving visitors an opportunity to view the wildlife in a natural setting.
