Stones River Farm

The long-sought 600-acre Stones River Farm is now part of Metro Parks.

To become a regional park featuring almost four miles of scenic river frontage and home to new miles of greenway, hiking and mountain biking trails, this important acquisition was assisted by Greenways for Nashville and many much appreciated individual contributions.  Additional information about Stones River Farm
