Metro is moving forward with a long-discussed plan to transform 46 acres of asphalt, concrete and gravel at The Fairgrounds Nashville into a park and green space, injecting new public uses into the city-owned property south of downtown.   Eight multi-use soccer fields, a 1.3-mile greenway, a dog park and other amenities are planned for the underutilized, flood-prone part of the fairgrounds on the site’s south end that is flanked by Brown’s Creek.

Nashville’s Green Spaces Hold Key to Its Future Success

From the Tennessean

We can’t talk about all that Nashville has to offer its natives, newcomers and visitors without acknowledging the majestic beauty of its parks, green spaces and waterways.
