Riverfront Park and Ascend Amphitheater

Riverfront Park, a LEED Gold Certified facility, is the continued realization of the ambitious redevelopment of Nashville’s riverfront. This unique 12-acre park redevelopment masterfully integrates a momentous commercial 6,500 seat amphitheater into a welcoming “Park First” space while generating local economic growth and sustaining Nashville’s legacy as the Music City.

As the largest public green space in the downtown core, the park first theme was a key driver from conception to completion. The landscape architect-led team, successfully integrated a world class concert venue into a dynamic public space. The team integrated the architecture with the landscape to create active edges on all sides of the amphitheater. Bioretention is woven throughout public spaces, treating over 3.35 acres of the park. Lush native plantings provide seasonal change and habitat.
