Plan To Play: Countywide Parks and Greenways Master Plan

Plan to Play Logo

Plan To Play is a Metro Parks and Recreation-led initiative for a countywide parks and greenways master plan, which will serve as a guide for future investments in and growth of our park system in the coming decades. The yearlong Plan To Play process includes an inventory of past and current plans, an analysis of programs and facility offerings, a benchmarking of peer cities, and an intensive public input process, including public meetings and surveys.

Preliminary Recommendations

We’ve heard from more than 9,000 Nashvillians on our Plan To Play master plan.

  • The growth of Nashville and changing demographics
  • Community needs
  • Park land Level of Service
  • Preliminary recommendations on land, facilities, and programming
