Mill Ridge Park is set to be Nashville’s newest Regional Park when it opens. The 600-acre property in Southeast Davidson County is on Old Hickory Boulevard just across the street of the entrance to Cane Ridge High School. The park will be an inclusive green space for all Nashvillians. As the park’s development and planning continues, so does the development of Public Art!
In 2018, Metro Arts formed a selection panel of local community members and design professionals to select a public artist to design a site-specific artwork at the new Mill Ridge Park. The panel selected Daily Tous Les Jours (DTLJ), a Montreal-based interaction design studio, to design, fabricate and install public artwork at the park.
The project is currently in the design development phase. Daily Tous Les Jours will be hosting workshops in the spring to engage with community members as they continue to develop concepts for the Public Artwork.

Mill Ridge Park: Community Public Art Workshop
- April 13: 10:00 a.m.–11:30 a.m.
- Beverages and snacks will be provided.
- Location: Mill Ridge Park Site (12965 Old Hickory Blvd. Nashville, TN 37013)
- No restrooms will be accessible on site.
We are looking to bring together a diverse audience of people, all ages, to test different games that will serve to feed the creative process and bring this project to life. Everyone with interest in Mill Ridge Park and the future of Antioch is welcome!
As part of their research process, Daily Tous Les Jours is inviting people with specific areas of expertise and members of the community to a workshop. Our aim is to reveal the potential of the site, gather insights and look for common threads in the local stories. The workshop will be geared towards generating snippets of information and writing, which will inform a text-based permanent game to be deployed through Mill Ridge Park.
