Frankie Pierce Park
Frankie Pierce Park, whose name pays tribute to African American suffragist, Juno Frankie Pierce, is one of the first public/private projects in Nashville.
The park, located between Nelson Merry St. & Lifeway Plaza, is approximately 2.2 acres with 31 of the acres located in the floodway. The site originally had 10th ave. N and Gay Street running through the site with empty lots adjacent to the streets. The Capitol View Development Masterplan identified an opportunity to turn this awkward wedge between rail lines into a community park.
Frankie Pierce Park adds to the Gulch Greenway, provides a playground for all ages, 1/3 acre dog park and a sand volleyball court.
The park was completed in 2019.
