Riverfront Park

The re-envisioning of the 18 acre West Riverfront Master Plan evolved as an amendment to the South of Broadway Master Plan, completed in early 2013.  This master plan explored options of the 12 acre thermal site as well as implications of the existing 6.5 acre riverfront park.  The plan celebrates Nashville as Music City and creates a civic park for residents, employees and visitors alike with a multi-level continuous greenway and large civic green with the 6,500 person amphitheater serving as a defining structure within the park.

 

A mile long promenade engages the river front and the city along a tree-lined walk-way.  The promenade seamlessly integrates needed flood walls into the design as de-fining obelisks along the path.  The existing Riverfront Park is re-imagined as outdoor adventure plan for all ages, incorporating fountains, slide gardens and climbing nets, recalling the activity of the long departed Front Street wharf.
