Cumberland Park

Cumberland Park

Cumberland Park is an innovative play space for children and families incorporating unique play structures and water features to create an exciting new attraction along Nashville’s riverfront. The 6.5 acre park includes an outdoor amphitheater that can hold approximately 1,200 people for an event. The park sits between the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge and the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge and offers direct access to the Shelby Street Bridge by way of a new elevator and staircase.

Cumberland Park is part of the larger Riverfront Revitalization Plan which includes the recently completed renovation of the adjacent Bridge Building, as well as development of The Lawn, an open space for recreation and events, and the Bridge Building Landing.
