Countywide Parks & Greenways Master Plan

Metro Parks and Recreation kicked off a comprehensive yearlong master planning process – “Plan To Play” – with a series of community meetings and events to gain public input about how Nashvillians would like to see the park system grow and change in the coming years.

Previous Master Planning

The Countywide Parks & Greenways Master Plan was adopted in 2002, after a complete evaluation of the system and a year of input from citizens throughout Davidson County. The plan recommended more than $260 million of improvements to the park system, including a number of new initiatives, and eliminating deferred maintenance to existing parks and facilities. Many of these recommendations have since been funded and implemented, with new community centers, greenways, nature centers, playgrounds and many other improvements now in place. Metro Parks initiated a new round of public input during a master plan update, which was completed in July 2008.
